Having no trouble with an 11:00 a.m. start time in the first non-Florida game of the year, Ohio State received an outstanding pitching performance from Drew Rucinski, played solid on defense and received timely hitting to fuel a 7-1 win over Army in Forest City, North Carolina, which was once known as Burnt Chimney.

Playing at McNair Field, the summer home of the Forest City Owls, the Bucks improved to 5-3 with their fifth win in the last six games.

Army, a veteran team, that is projected to be an NCAA regional team and Patriot League winner, dropped to 1-7 with the loss.

Rucinski kept the Army bats in check all game on a cool, 50-degree day. He threw 8.0 innings and allowed just two hits – singles in the second and third respectively – and the one run with two walks. Rucinski improved to 2-0 on the year and lowered his ERA to 2.33.
