Coaches Comments, “Errors are our nemesis right now. In a slump with errors at the wrong time. Ryan Cappello threw first 4 innings allowing only 1 hit with 6 strikeouts but errors gave them 2 runs. Garrett Sullivan threw last two innings with 8 errors, Desert Christian took advantage and took a lead. We hit the ball just right to them. I believe we are in for a good season.” Mike Button
