Whitting before the Game:

  • Didn’t play very well against Rice
  • Couple of bad bounces hurt us
  • Need strong pitching to win
  • Joe Davis is still recovering his power from the multiple surgeries he had in the offseason. At least he’s able to get on base and hopefully the power continues to return.

Their head coach is a Googan, those fishermen on Wicked Tuna wouldn’t be happy.
