“Zach Fritz came on in relief of Bryce Hoffman in the first game to get the win. Zach also hit very well in both games and is a very difficult hitter for the opposition to deal with.

“Brad Olson gave up only three hits as he dominated the Rams. “Our entire lineup had hits in this one [game two],” added Weber.
