Once you get up on the road, I think it built our confidence, ... We got two goals off dead balls, which is something we have been kind of stressing all year.

[All need Baker to help them. And not just catching the deep one.

Deep balls come, but I want to catch them all. The past couple of years Ive been behind a couple of receivers. Now Im one of the oldest receivers, so I look to be more ready.

We got down so quick, double digits it certainly doesn't make for a lot of enthusiasm when you are up there trying to battle. He (Estes) got his pitches up and his balls were running off the plate a little bit. Their guy threw a lot of cutters today. that was his pitch today.

#Balls

He said they were very young. He said they were all freshmen, and I don't know if that is the case, but if it was, you had the reigning state champions up against players with no experience and they couldn't throw strikes.

#Balls

I played behind Roy for two years, and that's the best chance you have of getting the kid is to get him before he gets warmed up, ... He quick-pitched us a lot, as he normally does, but a lot of his pitches were balls. He put himself in a hole by getting behind in the count.

I want to give Mercer credit, they really never gave up. It was 6-0 at halftime, and they came out smoking. They were winning balls and making effective passes. They were pressuring the ball really nicely.
Gary Reynolds

I'm not sure if it was a matter of Derek getting better protection or him just settling in, or both. But we started clicking and Derek was throwing some great balls.

(Russ) made a couple of mistakes and they made him pay for it. He got under a few balls, I thought. But he's going to pitch good for us.
Chris Maloney
#Balls

It really did, and that's the thing I'm so disappointed about. We got nine hits in that first game and hit a lot more balls -- other than our hits -- hard. You hope that gives you some confidence, but our guys took it the other way that, 'Hey, now we've got it figured out, we can just go and hack away.' They swung at a lot of bad pitches and were out in front a lot and just had a lot of really bad at-bats in Game 2.
Boomer Walker
#Balls

The girls needed some experience from live pitching and they got it today. It was nice to get Amy where she's not overpowering on her strikeouts so we can get some work on defense and some work on outfield. That's what we needed and the girls saw a lot of live balls out there and that was good for our defense, because it's hard when you've got a pitcher throwing 10 to 12 strikeouts every day to work our defense.
Bill Sammons

Still, the key is in the passing and setting ourselves up. If we can do that consistently, and with our jump serve, you can look up and it's 10-10, and the next time you look up, it's 18-10. We serve a couple aces, block a couple balls, and all of a sudden, we get away from teams so fast and put a lot of pressure on them.
Ben Stroud
#Balls

I'm pretty sure those receivers would like more deep balls. As a team we don't worry about the calls, we've got to go out there and execute. We can't sit back and say it's because of the deep ball.
