“(I was) pleased with the way we had command on the mound,” W-P coach Dustin Snedigar said. “Talen (Larsen) and Devin (Acevedo) both threw really well when there was pressure from Touchet.
“Other than a couple mental mistakes, I thought our defense played really well and handled the Indians’ pressure.”
