The Calvary Cavaliers are back with a vengeance. What was supposed to be a rebuilding season after losing some key seniors is turning into a magical journey.
"It's just different because we weren't expected to be here. This was supposed to be our rebuilding year. We were supposed to win our region, maybe win first or second round, anything after that was a dream come true. To make it this far is awesome," said Calvary's ace Brad Hutson.
Second game starter Mike Allegretti said, "It ain't over yet. We haven't reached our goal. Not a lot of people were expecting us to reach that either. So we're just gonna do what we've done all year and just keep playing our best baseball. All year long we've had people telling us we couldn't do things, we've been doing it all year long so hopefully we'll keep up the good work."
The purple and black's perfect playoff record was put to the test Monday against Gordon Lee.
"First game was a little tough. We left about nine men on base which makes any game tough even if you are hitting good. We squeaked by. They scored and we just held our composure. I kept throwing good, defense kept playing good behind us and we prevailed," Hutson said.
The 2-1 win fired up the Cavs in game two of the doubleheader as their bats came alive driving in 10 runs.
"In the second game we started playing small ball, getting on, getting them moving, getting them in. We utilized the bunts and that got runs across the board for us," said Cavaliers Second Baseman Bubba Green.
