“We live and die by the way they set the table for us offensively,” Aylor said. “They’re doing what they need to do for us to be successful offensively.”
Tigers look to conserve pitching: Heading into a tournament in Catoosa this weekend, NHS coach Pete Sangirardi is impressed with the way his team has come alive offensively, scoring 23 runs in its last two games.
With four games in three days coming up, it’s not the bats that Sangirardi is worried about.
“You get to the ends of these tournaments and it’s always about having enough arms left,” he said. “It’s really important for us to be consistent at the plate and finish off games we’re in control of. The goal is to get a run-rule whenever possible because it allows you save some arms. That’s something we’re going to do our best to manage.”
