ELKHART â€” It was hard to find something not to like in Plymouthâ€™s opening game of the 2014 NLC season. The Pilgrims came out 16-6 winners and banged out 19 hits in the game. They led from first pitch to final pitch.
â€śComing after Saturday when we struggled a little bit, didnâ€™t put the ball in play very well, we did hit the ball well,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Ryan Wolfe. â€śWe were going to emphasize that tomorrow in practice, with five games coming up give the arms a little rest and get a lot of swings in, but we did hit the ball well.â€ť
