We would prefer to have won our first game at the beginning of the season. But we'll take it. What we hope to do now is take this win at the end of the season and build on it for next year.
Justin has pitched well all season. It just so happened that things fell our way today and we were finally able to get him a win. He has a lot of potential, and if he continues to work hard he will be even better next season.
Justin threw really well today. Any time you pitch like that, you deserve to win the game.
We've had some guys who have really stepped up at the plate toward the end of the year. Some of them are guys who had been struggling a little bit. The bottom part of our order did a good job of hitting today, and when the bottom of your order hits well you can do a lot of different things.
When it left the bat, I thought he had hit a home run. That's just part of the bad luck we've been having lately.
He's a good pitcher, but we have to do a better job of making contact. We just didn't hit the baseball, plain and simple. Colby probably should have gotten a 'W.' He pitched a great game.
We've had a run of bad luck lately when it comes to calls and various things like that going against us. It's frustrating. But I'm proud of our guys. They haven't hung their heads, and they haven't given up. They're continuing to improve with their fundamentals and their attitude.
