Head coach Chuck Wimberly stated after the four-game sweep, “We are hitting the ball extremely well as a team right now. Our batters are all producing runs and hits throughout the batting order, and anytime you can win or sweep on the road, you will give yourself a chance in the playoffs which are just around the corner at the start of May.”
