FARGO — A strong pitching performance helped lead North Dakota State to a 5-2 in over South Dakota State on Friday in the second game of a three-game Summit League series at Newman Outdoor Field.

The win clinched second place in the Summit standings for the Bison, who are 15-7 in the league and 21-28 overall. NDSU and third-place SDSU (13-10 Summit and 22-25 overall) play their final regular-season game at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 20, at Newman. The Summit League Championship is May 24-27 in Fargo.

Three Bison pitchers kept the Jackrabbits off the board the first eight innings, by which time NDSU led 5-0.

Tristen Roehrich started and went three scoreless innings, allowing a hit and two walks while striking out six. Nolan Johnson went the next three to get the win. He allowed five hits and struck out six. Shea Zetterman pitched the seventh and eighth, allowing only a walk while striking out one.

The Bison scored a run in the first on James Dunlap's RBI double to right field and NDSU added three more in the second on Cadyn Schwabe's run-scoring single, a Jackrabbits error and Peter Brookshaw's RBI single.


The Bison tacked on a run in the eighth on Dunlap's second RBI double of the night.

Bison reliever Skyler Riedinger ran into a bit of a snag in the ninth. A walk, a double, two wild pitches and a sacrifice fly allowed in two SDSU runs. But a groundout ended the game.

Dunlap had two hits and two RBI and Brookshaw had two hits and the RBI. Stephen Lund also had two hits.
