  • Struggle against Parkland??!! said,

    Ragsdale must have had an off night to only score 6 runs against Parkland. Not much to brag about there.

  • Mike E said,

    “Struggle” – don’t disagree with you. Tigers aren’t hitting much. Not bragging, just taking the win. Hit a lot of fly balls, 10 in all – 7 to the center fielder, on a night the wind was blowing straight in.
    Parkland played much better defensively than on the 3/7 30-2 Ragsdale victory.

    Don’t read much into it “struggle”, it’ was a win. Bigger games with much more on the line down the road.
