Uggen:  “I was a little concerned after Joseph (Ross) gave up the early homer but we bounced back with 2 in the bottom half and really pounded the ball in the 2nd to build the lead.  We continue to do a nice job hitting the ball square and put together another big rally scoring all 12 runs in the 2nd with 2 outs.  I was also impressed with how well our subs hit the ball. That’s a great sign.  Not often you get a chance to play 20 kids in a game and feel that all of them did a pretty good job, but we did that tonight.  Maybe it was the pink hats (the Norse wore for Baseball Strikes Out Kancer Night).”
