“What a college baseball game,” Chris Lemonis said after the game. “I just walked in. I was telling some of the guys you’re going to look up in a couple of years and see all those guys pitching in the big leagues. Just some special arms, special competitors on both sides. Their guy was phenomenal tonight. I was proud of Will Bednar and Landon Sims, the way they pitched.”
