The Oaks seem to find a unique way to win a game every time out and Friday's non-conference tilt against Oregon Tech was no different.

After dodging a winter weather advisory that forecasted 2-5 inches of snow during the day, the Oaks and Owls squared off for a single game at 5 p.m. It took just 2 1/2 hours for Jason Alexander and Kevin George to carve up the OIT offense in route to a 1-0 seven-hit shutout. All of the offense was created by one mighty swing of the bat from none-other than the NAIA's home run leader Jordan Getzelman. His solo shot to left in the fourth inning proved the game-winner and his 16th of the season. Menlo moved to 23-5 on the campaign while Oregon Tech fell to 10-15 on the year.

Jason Alexander has been the Oaks' ace all season and he showed it again Friday. The right handed senior worked 6.2 scoreless innings, scattering six hits while striking out six and walking two. He lowered his season ERA to minuscule 2.23 and his record to 6-0.

Relief ace Kevin George came on and did what he does best to seal the deal and pick up his team-leading second save. George allowed just one hit and fanned five in 2 1/3 innings of work.

Menlo was kept at bay offensively by OIT starter John Schulz who went seven strong innings allowing just one run on three hits, striking out seven and walking a pair. Brooks Hanson came on in relief and worked two scoreless, striking out two.

Offensively Menlo had just four hits, each coming from a different batter. In addition to the Getzelman home run, Dalton Maxwell had the only other extra basehit, a double. Andrew Cox and Dean Aliamus each had a single to their credit.

Menlo and OIT will conclude the three game set on Saturday with a double header that begins at 11 a.m.
