Uggen: “I was very happy with how Joseph Ross threw over his 3 innings. Collin (Dawes) and Andy (Roser) pitched well too but didn’t get much help from the defense. . I thought we hit the ball reasonably well. We had 4-5 balls hit very well but right at people. All in all though, we played a pretty good team very well twice today so we were fortunate.”
