The 2020 season if off to a good start for the baseball Bears thanks in large part to the right arm of Logan Wiley.
Missouri State (1-0) earned a 1-0 opening day victory over Central Arkansas (0-1) on Friday afternoon in Conway, Arkansas.
Wiley, a Kickapoo product, was dominant on the mound while throwing seven scoreless innings before being relieved in the eighth. He struck out seven batters and only allowed three hits on 58 total pitches.
MSU scored the game's lone run when reigning Missouri Valley Conference Freshman of the Year Dakota Kotowski drove in senior Ben Whetstone with a two-out double to right-center field in the top of the fourth inning to take a 1-0 lead.
