DUNDAS, Minn. (5/14/10)--
Augsburg pitchers Marshall Nelson (JR, Albertville, Minn./West Lutheran HS), Alex Glasenapp (SR, Minneapolis, Minn./South HS) and Bryant Nordby (JR, Brownton, Minn./McLeod West HS) combined to complete a pitching gem against the Cobbers, allowing just two hits in the victory.
Augsburg did not allow a base hit after the third inning, and allowed just three Cobber baserunners – all on walks – over the final six innings. Throwing 100 pitches (61 strikes), Nelson struck out three while walking two. Glasenapp had a strikeout and a walk in two innings of relief, and Nordby completed the Auggie triumph with a scoreless ninth inning.
Meanwhile, Augsburg pounded out nine hits against three Concordia pitchers to claim the victory, the Auggies' seventh win in their last nine games.
The Cobbers' lone run came in the top of the first, as Jake Krause (SR, Moorhead, Minn.) led off the game with a single and came around to score on a groundout by Nick Lewis (SR, Fergus Falls, Minn.).
But after that, Augsburg took command of the game. In the bottom of the second, Petersen doubled and came around to score on a two-out RBI double by Mason Holmquist (JR, Prior Lake, Minn.). Augsburg sent eight batters to the plate in the third inning, scoring three runs. Seaman drove in John Demgen (JR, Minneapolis, Minn./South HS) and Henry on a double to right-center, and later scored on a fielding error.
In the seventh inning, the Auggies capped the scoring with two runs. Tim Gerding (SO, Robbinsdale, Minn./Cooper HS) led off the frame with a double, and after a walk, two runs came across on a double by Henry, combined with a throwing error.
Henry and Gerding had two hits apiece for the Auggies in the game, with Demgen scoring two runs.
