“It takes a team to beat a good team, and I think that’s what we did today,” catcher Sam Schwab said. “Everyone definitely stepped up. Our bats weren’t working at first, but everyone knew what to do. We were calm, we were poised, and we showed it. We definitely have more work to do, but we’re all excited. We’re all pumped. I think we’re on a high right now. There’s no limit for this team. We’re just going to keep going until we can’t anymore.”
