The Cougars dropped a pitchers' duel in Game 1 of a road doubleheader but evened things up in the second game.
Cody Lodermeier and Logan Spitzack each threw seven scoreless innings before Spitzack allowed one run in the top of the eighth. In the bottom of the inning, the first three Triton batters reached base before Blake Roussel roped a game-winning, two-run single into center field.
Lodermeier struck out nine and walked two while Spitzack fanned seven and walked three.
In Game 2, the Cougars had just four hits but they found a way to take down Triton. Erik Krueger went 2-for-3 with three RBI while Jordan Thompson also had two hits in three at-bats.
Z-M (13-3 overall, 8-2 Hiawatha Valley League) plays host to Byron on Friday.
