MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.– After trailing 5-0 against the Gophers, the Falcons managed eight unanswered runs, including a five-run 7th inning to notch the 8-7 comeback win at U.S. Bank Stadium.

“As Marcus Luttrell says, you’re never out of the fight,” said head coach Mike Kazlausky. “Our guys believe, and we showed grit to come back.”

Blake Covin led Air Force with three hits in five at-bats, driving in one of Air Force’s five runs in the 7th. 

“Blake is the straw that stirs the drink,” said Kaz. “It’s great to have our leader back.”

Sam Kulasingam finished his evening 2-4 with 3 RBI, as he has at least one hit in all 11 games this season.

Trayden Tamiya also had 3 RBI, as his 8th inning two-out, two-run single proved to be difference in the game. Tamiya also saved a run in the bottom of the 8th, when the junior dove to his left, making a crucial forehand stop to prevent the tying run from scoring.

“Trayden was our player of the game,” said Kaz. “Not only did he drive in three runs, but he played stellar defense.”

C4C Jason Booker made the most of his first collegiate start, as the Air Force left fielder went 2-4 with a double and a run driven in. Gabriel Garcia also ended the evening 2-4.

Seungmin Shim picked up his second win of the season, and battled for six innings. He allowed five runs on seven hits, three strikeouts and two walks, but after giving up four runs in his first three innings, Shim settled in, giving up just a single run over his last three frames.

Down 5-1 with one out in the top of the 7th, Garcia and Jay Thomason both singled, before Aerik Joe was hit by a pitch to suddenly load the bases. Tamiya hit a slow roller up the middle, but beat out a potential double-play to drive in Garcia. Booker, Covin, and Kulasingam each followed with two-out base hits, with Kulasingam’s two-run single giving Air Force a 6-5 lead.

Zach Argo relieved Shim in the bottom of the 7th, and lasted 1.2 innings. Argo was charged with two runs on three hits with two strikeouts. Duke Benge needed just one pitch to end the 8th before Doyle Gehring notched his fourth save of the season in a 1-2-3 final inning.

First pitch for Game Two between Air Force and Minnesota is scheduled for Saturday, March 12 at 1:00 pm MT.
