Every game he pitches, it's like the World Series for the other team. For some of them, it could be the height of their baseball career facing a guy like that.
He had better control last year. All of his walks come in bunches.
For the first six innings we were totally in control of the game against the No. 1 team in the state, we just didn't make the play or the pitch we needed to win the game.
We just didn't make the play or the pitch we needed to win the game. You're not a human being if that doesn't sting.
But if he continues to develop as a baseball player, come June 7 (the day of the baseball draft), there's still a chance. He'll have a tough decision.
He was what we expected him to look like.
It was a hard-fought game, it was close the whole game, but we made the plays when we needed to.
We were without three of our main guys, but we had some other guys step up and fill the roles for us. It was nice to see some guys have some really nice at-bats.
We needed something good to happen. This week was huge for us. We hadn't been playing very well up until this week. This win is exactly what we needed.
