Olson Delivers Again


Zach OlsonDillon Loft


Zach Olson (3-0) continued his stellar 2019 season on Sunday afternoon in Granite Falls, hitting a 3 run home run as well as throwing 4 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball to earn the win in a 5-4 bout with the Kilowatts.

After a scoreless four frames of action, the A's took a 1-0 lead when Peyton Grant and Dillon Loft hit back to back doubles. Loft's hit was the first of his A's career.

Ryan VanMoer singled home Loft, pushing the A's lead to 2-0. Then Olson delivered his big shot over the fence and padding the A's margin to 5.

Starter Logan Tomasek had been cruising, not allowing a hit in the first four innings, but he lost the strike zone in the fifth, giving up a lead off walk, a single and hitting three batters.

Olson moved to the mound with one out in the fifth, and despite back to back singles and the bases loaded, the A's escaped with the lead by turning a 1-2-3 double play.

Neither team scored the rest of the way.

The win improves the A's overall record to 12-2 on the season and 9-1 in the Corn Belt League.

The A's will travel to Minneota on Wednesday night to take on the Mudhens. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
