Transfers show potential in GV debuts

A pair of junior transfers turned in a pair of impressive performances on the mound for the Grand Valley State University baseball team over the weekend in its opening series at the University of Southern Indiana.

GVSU pitcher Aaron Jensen, who played two seasons at Grand Rapids Community College, surrendered just four hits and two runs while striking out five in 8.2 innings of work despite being charged with a loss in his first career start as a Laker.

South Suburban College (Ill.) transfer Evan Nietfeldt followed suit two days later, and gave up just five hits and a trio of runs while striking out three as GVSU won 12-6 to claim a 2-1 series victory.
