Apparently good enough to win college games almost single-handedly.

The Whitman College senior star from Juneau showcased his two-way skills in a 2-1 victory over nationally ranked George Fox in NCAA D3 action in Oregon.

Cohen threw seven innings of six-hit ball and hit a home run against a top-20 team. He struck out eight batters.

The Alaskan is making a case for Northwest Conference MVP even though Whitman is in last place.

Cohen leads the league in RBIs [32] and doubles [11] and top 10 in batting average [.349] and slugging percentage [.532] in 27 games.

He has an eagle eye in the box, striking out just 10 times in 125 plate appearances.
