Cobbers Put Up a Dozen, Beat Valley City 12-6.
Moorhead, MN --
Concordia broke out of their two-game offensive slump by scoring eight runs in the second inning, and put up 12 total runs in doubling up Valley City State 12-6.

Concordia hammered out 14 hits and ten different players collected hits, as the Cobbers evened their record at 8-8. Matt Askegaard pitched the final seven innings, striking out six and allowing seven hits, to pick up his second win of the year. Chad Felstul was the catalyst for the offense as he went 3-for-4 with two RBI’s and three runs scored. His leadoff home run in the second inning ignited Concordia’s eight-run blaze.

Valley City took the early lead in the game when Tom Klapp homered in the second plate appearance of the game. Klapp went on to lead the Vikings, going 3-for-5 with three RBI’s. Bryce McLean was saddled with the loss. He never made it out of the pivotal second frame, giving up all eight runs in the inning on eight hits.
Besides Felstul, catcher Ben Kvidt and designated hitter Ryan Hebrink had multiple hit games for the Cobbers. Kvidt went 2-for-5 with two RBI’s while Hebrink was 2-for-5 with a single run batted in.

Klapp was 3-for-5 to lead the Vikings while James Thornton went 2-for-5 and chipped in with a 3 run homer in the eighth.

Control on the mound and defense were the Vikings nemesis again today in Concordia’s 8 run second inning. Only two of the Cobber runs were earned. Head Coach Cory Anderson stated "Our bread and butter at the start of the year has turned sour on us recently. Time to time teams fall into offensive slumps but we can’t afford to slip defensively or with our pitching the way we are producing runs at this juncture .

Valley City hosts a pair of doubleheaders over the weekend. On Saturday they play Dickinson State, and then on Sunday they square off against the University of Mary.
