Highlights: Struck out 10 batters as the Wolves defeated Coosa 3-0 in the clinching Game 2 of the the teams' first-round playoff series

Coach Brian Krehmeyer's take: "(The Coosa game) was his best performance of the year. He was really throwing the ball with a lot of velocity, but more importantly, he was spotting the ball. He's been a guy that we've pitched in Game 1 of our series within region, so he's always gone up against the No. 1 starter from the other teams. He's battled through some tough luck. He's kept us in games, and we've either given it away at the end or after I had taken him out the relief pitcher wasn't up to par. His stats may not necessarily reflect the kind of season that he's had, but he's a guy that we lean on heavily."
