Coach Hill- "In the first game, when we were down going into the bottom of the 7th inning, we talked about being in that position before and to just focus on making the at bats "count". You could tell on the guy's faces that they were determined to make the most of each at bat and they did. We are really swinging well right now as we finish up the conference part of our schedule. I'm proud of our accomplishments this week."
Record: Overall 13-5, Conference 10-1.
