“It all starts with good pitching,” said Greenville coach, Adam Eberwein. “Ricky did a fantastic job hitting his locations and changing speeds.”

“We preach to our pitchers that walked batters turn into runs scored,” Eberwein continued. “Ricky had zero walks, hit two batters late in the game which turned into runs.”
