Olson allowed three runs on five hits, striking out six and walking three. Daniel Zapata pitched two scoreless innings and Jayson Huett earned the save with a three-up, three-down ninth. Zapata hasn't allowed an earned run in his last 10 innings pitched, dating back to July 22 at Duluth.

Olson got hit for two runs in the first inning and the Stingers responded in the third. Reynolds hit his first double to score Anthony Bemboom, then Isaac Ballou's ground-ball fielder's choice scored Reynolds.

The Border Cats plated a run in the bottom of the inning, but Willmar answered with a run in the fourth and two in the fifth. Reynolds, who finished with three hits, smacked a single to score Matt Serna.

Eduardo Gonzalez doubled in the fifth, driving in two runs.

The Stingers and the Border Cats meet again today in Thunder Bay, then Willmar has Sunday off, returning to action Monday for its final four-game homestand of the season.
