Before, (with) all the metal bats all you could hear was a ding. Now it's more of a solid-hitting feeling, like they've extended the sweet spot.

I thought about (the no-hitter) before the sixth inning and that's the worst thing I could have done. I have to stop thinking and have confidence in myself and pull through for my team.

We know they're a good program and we knew we had to come to play. Every conference game is important and even though they're struggling, we can't play down to anyone else's level.

We all wanted this win. We know people from their team, it's a pride thing. We wanted this so bad.

They've made a lot of bats now that when you hit the ball, the stinging in your hands, you can't tell now.
