“They out pitched us, they out fielded us. They out hit us,” Brashear coach Chelsea Clark said. “It’s frustrating, but I don’t want my girls to get down over something like that. Kudos to Abby (Farmer). She is a good pitcher. She has been for four years now.”
“It’s frustrating when you can’t put a string of hits together and get one person across the plate,” Chelsea Clark said. “We have to put ourselves in a position to give ourselves a chance. That’s what I feel like we are failing to do right now.”
