The sophomore allowed one earned run on five hits on Saturday.
What can you attribute your recent performances to?
I wanted to throw as many strikes as I could and make them get themselves out by swinging at my pitch. I have been focusing on hitting more spots and being more effective with all of my pitches rather than trying to power the ball by guys every time.
Do you have any superstitions?
I never step on the lines the day of a game and I always tie my cleats as tight as I can for some reason.
