Salt Lake trailed 3-1 in game one after five innings, but rallied to tie the game after scoring a run in the sixth and seventh frames. Despite the Salt Lake comeback effort, CSN brought the game-winning run across the plate in the bottom of the seventh with a walk-off single. Sophomore Tyson Popoff knocked in an RBI single in the first inning, sophomore Braden Anderson went 2-for-4 at the plate, and freshman Palmer Page was 2-for-3 with the bat in a losing effort.

In game two of the doubleheader, the Bruins got the bats going late, winning 9-2. SLCC trailed 2-1 after four, but the Bruin lumber heated up in the fifth inning with 5 runs driven in. Salt Lake added two more runs in the sixth and one in the seventh to erase all doubt and claim the victory. Freshman pitching was key for the Bruins, with Michael Springer pitching well in four innings of work, and Chris Conran chipping in a solid inning of relief by getting three key outs, allowing no runs and fanning one Coyote batter. Sophomore Kennedy Kinkade went 2-for-4 at the plate, and freshman Bryan Heward went 2-for-4 as well with a key RBI triple in the fifth frame to get the Salt Lake run machine going.

The Bruins will be back in action next weekend for the team's first home games of the 2012 campaign. SLCC will play doubleheaders against Colorado Northwestern Community College (0-7) on Friday and Saturday, March 9th and 10th at Cate Field in West Jordan.
