ON THE MOUND
#11 Taylor Andrew | 7.0 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K
Taylor Andrew said, "Today's win was a nail-biter but we fought hard all the way until the end. Our defense is awesome and having them behind me takes a lot of weight off my back." On driving in the winning run, "To drive in the winning run was good but lucky. Tomorrow we need to get the bats started early and rally some hits together, if we do that then we will come out and get the W again."
