We weren't really concerned with what their ERAs were. We were more concerned with them getting in their side work and improving throughout the summer. There's no question they did.

The weird thing is if we would have beat Elk Grove in that last pool play game, we could have advanced to the semifinals via tiebreakers. We would have finished 1-2 in pool play and so would have three other teams. But we didn't win, so it didn't make a difference.
