Key Quote
Ike Cousins Head Baseball Coach Wes Johnson

On tonight’s outcome…

“You can’t talk about losses. We play tomorrow in less than 12 hours. We’ve got to go tomorrow and get back up on that horse. We’ll be back on this field getting ready. You’ve got to learn from what you did right and wrong. We had opportunities to win this ball game a few times tonight and just need to get it done. We need to learn to slow this game down and get our heartbeat under control. We’ve got to understand that we can get this job done. We have to believe and we’ve got to go execute.”
