Coach Holtzleiter ” We had a lot of chances to score runs we left the bases loaded twice, we did not situationally hit and it cost us several runs. Clay came in and pitched well and Collin battled through 5 innings.”

Coach Holtzleiter ” This was a well played game, ultimately what decided the game was a ball that got stuck in the webbing of a glove costing us an out. I was happy with the way we played. Brandin Frazier and Clay pitched great. It is a tremendous sign for our program when we can throw two Freshman on the mound and still compete.”
