“Our goal is to make the final four and see what happens,” said Coach Tiger Martin. “We can play with anyone. My concern is we have not put teams away like I hoped. We continue to let teams hang around and one of those games may trip us up. With that being said, our bats are warming up and our goal is to get some games in versus quality pitching before playoffs begin.”
