Drosche was pleased with the output from the plate and hopes to carry that momentum forward.
“(The offensive effort) is big for us,” he said. “We have had some trouble throughout the season producing throughout the line up. Tonight we were much better throughout and put some pressure on them and that was a big part of the win tonight.”
After Strobel gave up the single, Matt Moore came in and got the final three outs to close the door on Pike.
One bright spot for the Red Devils was the work of reliever Casey Werner, who threw 2 2/3 innings, allowing only an unearned run, while striking out six.
