Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - After waiting a day the Bison baseball team opened the Summit League Tournament facing Oakland.
Scoreless game into the 4th inning when Kyle Kleinendorst crushes this pitch to right field, his second home run of the season. Bison out to a 1-0 lead.
More than enough for John Straka; he was sensational, a complete game, allows just 5 hits and strikes out 5.
Oakland had runners on in the last five innings but Straka got out of trouble each time and NDSU wins 2-0 the final. Bison will play Western Illinois tomorrow at 11 in the winner's bracket.
John Straka, 6th Complete Game of Season (NDSU Athletics): “Once you make it to the tournament, it's anybody's ballgame; and for us matter of us had some ups and downs once we play our best baseball that's when tournament time came that's what we've been shooting for all year and I think you saw that today.”
