Olson, Bulldogs Shut Out Tigers To Complete Sweep
March 6, 2011
STOCKTON, Calif. - Tyler Olson cruised through a one-hit complete game as the Gonzaga University baseball team shut out the University of the Pacific 4-0 Sunday. The Bulldogs (4-5) sweep the three-game series and have won four-straight.
In addition to pitching his first career complete game and earned his first win of the season, Olson struck out a career-high 10 and did not allow the Tigers (2-8) to reach third base.
In the top of the third inning Cameron Edman led off with a double to left center field and advanced to third on a ground out. Steven Halcomb hit an RBI sacrifice bunt but was ruled safe on a throwing error by pitcher Jake Hummel. After advancing to third on a ground out Halcomb scored on a wild pitch to give Gonzaga a 2-0 lead.
Gonzaga cashed in some insurance runs in the eighth. Clayton Eslick and Moon each reached safely on singles to the outfield and Bolinger drove both of them in with a single up the middle.
"Tyler really pitched well today," Bulldogs head coach Mark Machtolf said. "He was throwing four pitches for strikes and was getting ahead of almost every hitter. He really competed and gave us a great performance. We also helped him with solid defense. Offensively Billy hit the ball well and Royce came up with a big hit in a big situation to extend the lead."
The Zags will now head to Columbia, Mo., to play a two-game series against the University of Missouri starting Tuesday at 1 p.m. PT.
