Tim Colwell/ Today: 4-4, Run Scored: "It's huge, just for the confidence mostly, especially for some of the younger guys to get a taste of success. I think it's going to be huge for us going forward as a team."
Wes Satzinger/ Today: 1-2, 2 RBI: "We've been close in a lot of games the last few weeks and it feels awesome to just finally break through and finish a game strong. I think on Friday, awful weather with the wind and everything, we hung together. Our pitching, offense, and defense were all really good. The rest of the weekend I felt that we did a good job of putting all three phases together. It's definitely nice being home for once and having some good weather."
