We hit the baseball well. I was proud of how they hit the ball Thursday.
Sean did a good job for us at the top of the lineup. He is our lead-off man and he needs to get on base and score runs and he did that in this game.
He did a good job throwing strikes and that helped us out.
He did a good job of throwing strikes and getting ground balls. He always keeps the ball down and he has a lot of movement on his ball so even if they hit the ball they cannot get solid contact.
He looked good out there. He stayed strong after that first inning and pitched well for us.
He was solid on the mound for us. His control was better than it has been all season.
I was excited to see him hit the ball like he did. We will have to depend on him and the other guys at the top of the lineup to get on base for the other guys to drive them in.
We were able to get singles and three walks, but we also struck out eight times and that is something we will have to work on in practice. We have to get better at making contact with two strikes.
We have a very important game against Walton Thursday because they are a good team. We know we have to be ready and at our best for that game.
We know one game does not make a season and we will come back and be a better team down the stretch.
We were able to run the bases well and we did some other things right as well.
We came out and did what we needed to do, win our first district game. That first district game is always important and it is good to get the first one.
We saw good pitching, but we could have come away with a win if we would have limited our mistakes.
We had a decent day pitching, but the errors killed us.
To their credit, they did not back down and they made the score 13-8, but we were able to show character and add on some runs.
We hit in spurts tonight and we were able to string together some hits to get the win. But our pitching and our defense were the keys to the win tonight.
We had runners on second and third with no outs in sixth inning, down 5-4, and we were not able to get anyone home.
Early on I didn't feel like we were ready to play and we were up 2-1 after the third inning. But we went down the left field line and had a talk and they responded by hitting the ball hard from there on out. I guess the heart to heart worked.
That first pitcher they threw at us did a good job through four innings, but when they brought those other guys in we were able to break the game open.
It was a good game and we got a lot of runners on base.
His control was great and I was pleased with how he pitched.
He pitched well enough to win and Phillip came in and pitched fine as well.
