WALESKA, Ga. — Sarah Abramson has found another level since entering postseason play in 2021, spinning her third complete-game shutout in a row as Oregon Tech defeated Cottey College 4-0 in the Reinhardt Bracket of the NAIA Opening Round on Monday.

The Owls ace pitched seven innings, striking out a season-high 15 batters while only allowing five total baserunners aboard. The only time Abramson ran into trouble was in the top of the sixth. With the bases loaded and two outs, the Milwaukie, Oregon-native kept the runners stuck on the basepaths to keep the Comets from plating a run.

Oregon Tech's offense came out firing on all cylinders. Kaila Mick was hit by a pitch in the first inning and Aubrie Businger made them pay. The Owls' third baseman hit a rocket off the wall for a one-out, RBI triple to give the Owls the only run they would actually need early on.

In the bottom of the fourth, Kennedy Jantzi hit a one-out double before Maddie Deverna entered the game to pinch run for Jantzi. She made it to third after Maggie Buckholz grounded out to the right side and then the speedy sophomore scored on a wild pitch to bump OIT's lead to two.

The next inning was just more run support for Abramson as the Owls first two batters reached on bunts. Olivia Lethlean got to first on an error by the Comets first baseman and then got to second as Jensen Becker hit a picture-perfect bunt to the pitcher and legged out an infield hit. The third bunt in a row was a sacrifice by McKenna Armantrout to move Lethlean and Becker 60 feet closer to scoring. Mick hit a line drive right at the pitcher, where the ball bounced off Lacey Cruz's leg, allowing Lethlean to score and Becker to move up to third. Businger was next up and hit a deep flyball to right-center. Becker tagged and scored to double the Owls lead, one they'd never relinquish.

They'll play again Tuesday at 9 am PT against the winner of the Reinhardt-Coastal Georgia game.
