Tacoma, WA - Behind the dominant pitching of 6 Titan arms, TCC tossed a collective no-hitter against the junior varsity squad from Concordia. Tacoma also parlayed 9 Concordia walks, 5 hit batters, and 4 hits into 11 runs to take the opening game of the Wednesday doubleheader at Minnitti Field. The Titans also took the second game 11-4, racking up 10 hits in the process.

Colton Brown got the start for Tacoma, and earned his 6th win of the year. Five other Titan arms got in on the act, including freshman fireballer Terik Gofincha slamming the door in the 7th, as the innings of work were predetermined for the midweek contest.

"We wanted to get all our guys some work in preparation for the big weekend, and this was a great way to do it. Everybody came in and did their job. Obviously, a no-hitter is a fun thing for the guys, but we just need to keep improving every time out," said Head Coach Donegal Fergus.

Sophomore sparkplug Matty Williams scored 3 times for the Titans to lead the offense.

Game 2 did not start out as well for Tacoma, as they looked sloppy and lethargic early. A couple of fielding and throwing errors led directly to unearned runs and a 4-1 Concordia lead. The Titans responded, however, and answered back with 3 runs in the bottom of the fourth, and 5 in the 5th, eventually cruising to an 11-4 victory. Will Pierce and Allan Butler both went deep, blasting their first home runs of the year. Shortstop Ryne Briley also scored 3 runs for Tacoma.

Sophomore Pat Meisenheimer pitched well to start the game, but earns a no-decision after reliever Anthony Klonitsko gave Concordia the lead back in the 4th. Andrew Olson came out of the pen to earn the win, with David Olson closing the door in the 7th.

Tacoma is back in action on the road this Saturday at Centralia. Centralia is just one game back in the Western Division standings. The two teams will play a doubleheader on Sat, then return to Tacoma for a single game on Sunday. Start time is 1pm for both days.

Brown and Andrew Olson are scheduled to take the mound for Saturday's contests, while Jordan Staples gets the nod on Sunday.
