What Did Coach Say? 

 “We had some up and down pitching performances and had some guys pick up some guys who were struggling a bit. Kind of up and down offensively as well but some guys come up with some timely hits. We played an all-around good game, and these guys are showing they have the ability to come from behind and make some things happen and we’re excited about that.” – Kerrick Jackson

Great come-back win tonight,” – Kerrick Jackson
