He also pointed to his senior leadership as well.

"Kneller is one of our leaders and came up with a big hit for us in the bottom of the sixth inning," remarked Loomis. "All of our kids really made contributions. Dietz, our catcher, is doing a great job, Bird is doing a great job. The kids are really coming together. We're just going one game at a time and hopefully we'll be a good playoff team. I like our chances, I think we're going to have a real shot at the league and the district playoffs."
