FROM COACH LYON
“Great game from Mel in the circle. We got great pitching and good solid defense. Jessie came through with a clutch hit to bring in the run and Mel made it stand up. To have 13 wins through our first 20 with a lot of road games and we have only played one and a half games with our starting lineup due to injuries. I am looking forward to starting conference this weekend.”
