We were able to scratch a couple across, and that was all Kersh needed, he did the rest, he was outstanding again tonight… just unbelievable, getting guys on, getting in trouble, and finding ways to get out of it, all year long, and that’s what makes him so good.
Unbelievable job, Joc hasn’t played a lot of right field, and to go out there, make a game-saving catch like that, over his shoulder, was unbelievable. Belli had a couple of plays; the pop up, running back, catching the ball with his shoulder.And earlier in the game, the weird push bunt attempt that went over his head, having the awareness to get to it, get the force out at second, I think was huge for us.
Obviously we are playing really good baseball, we are clicking on all cylinders right now, and we like our chances tomorrow.
