Cromie had an RBI and a double in the Saturday doubleheader with COI, giving Oregon Tech 2-0 and 10-1 wins. Cromie also had two RBI Friday at Eastern Oregon where OIT swept those two games 5-0 and 8-7, the latter in eight innings.

Pitcher Taylor Schmidt is now 21-4 this season. The Owls have a 2.5 game lead in the Cascade Conference entering the final series of the year, traveling to Portland for two with Concordia. OIT also has a pending resumption of a suspended game with Southern Oregon.

After losing two to the University of British Columbia on Saturday, Oregon Tech baseball resumed the series in Vancouver Sunday, splitting with third-place UBC with a 6-4 victory. The Owls are 10-18 in league play now with one series to go – this weekend in Klamath Falls against Concordia.

OIT is two games behind Concordia with a four-game set at Kiger Stadium set to start at noon on Saturday.
