Romero has throw two very good games back-to-back. And we did a good job defensively but two hits is not going to get it done in this league.
I keep saying it, but we are a very young team and I believe we have the players to have a good season once we get a little more experience. I thought the way we finished the tournament showed that we can compete.
We had the bases loaded three times and get one run out of it. We need to get some guys to step up and get the big clutch hits when we need them.
Some guys like Haden really redeemed themselves today. He came back with a huge home run for us after an error and that is the sign of a good player.
You would think the word would be out that you don't want to run on this kid.
This loss is a really tough one to take. We get guys in scoring position and then can't get the big hit to put runs on the board. Very frustrating.
There's no doubt we are very young in key positions, but you play the cards you are dealt and these kids are going to be good players but just need some time. It was a tough way to lose but I like the way we battled back.
Kyle was actually throwing real well but it was obvious the Buchanan batters were leaning into both those pitches. That's baseball and I don't blame then for doing what it takes to get on base but the umpires need to be strong enough to see what is happening and make the right call.
Right now with all the rain, the pitchers are definitely ahead of the hitters. And this might hurt us a little more than other teams because we are so young.
Adam has thrown three great games in a row and certainly didn't deserve to lose this one. They way he battled out of jams early on and kept us in the game is a tribute to the type of competitor he is.
