“We didn’t start off very well tonight,” said East head coach Matt Miller. “We misplayed a few balls and got ourselves down 6-0 after two innings, but the boys kept battling and we were able to come back. We didn’t have our best night hitting, but we started putting the ball in play and was forcing them to make the plays. Defensively, we got burnt a few times because we didn’t read the ball off the bat really well which hurt us early. We have to continue to get better defensively if we want to compete. I thought Kyle threw the ball better than his stats show and Dylan came in to get us out a jam and then get the win in relief. I’m proud of the boys for not giving up and then battling back to get the win.”
