Coach’s Quote:

Kevin Kimball:  “We needed 2 wins and we got the job done.  Ruiz & Erazo both had great outings, and we played great defense behind them.  Our approach coming into today was that we have 12 ‘one-game seasons’ left, and that’s how we’ll continue to approach things these last two weeks.”
