SYRACUSE â€” Plymouthâ€™s Pilgrims completed a very difficult feat in NLC baseball competition â€” a 2-0 win at Wawasee made it three straight wins away from home in conference play.
â€śI just tell the guys when you walk off the bus expect to win,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Ryan Wolfe. â€śThatâ€™s got to be the mindset when you get off the bus. Weâ€™ve played well on the road; overall I think weâ€™re 5-0. I donâ€™t know what it is, but whatever it is letâ€™s keep doing it.â€ť
