Coach Jones “It was the sort of game we couldn’t’t win last year. We got off to a rough start, compounding our mistakes. But our effort and the quality of at-bats improved as the day went on. We put pressure on the defense with hard, consistent contact and aggressive base running. Our Pitching was outstanding all day. It was a real team effort.”

Leading Hitters- Case 1-3 (Run), White 1-4 (Run), Walker 1-3 (2B, 2RBI)
