Their pitcher was spectacular the primary time via the order, however I believed we made some good changes the second time. I believe we completed the sport as 13 of 18 at bats had been high quality at bats. Anytime we’re having that type of self-discipline within the batter’s field, good issues can occur and we’ll put some runs on them. Pleased with all these issues.
