Last year's team had an attitude that they were the best and nobody was going to beat them. This team is the same way. They don't care who we lost [to graduation]. They expect to win. This is just a wonderful, wonderful group of kids and we're having a blast.

I watch every good hitting team he goes up against and it?s the same result. You put him against good hitters and you don?t know why, but he just gets guys out. I know why -- because he knows pitching.

It?s kind of like last year. The confidence from last year?s team is in this team still. One guy got on and boom, everyone jumped on the wagon again and got it going.

I was very happy with our comeback. It was a little hairy for awhile but we did it.
