Jake Schulz said, “I was feeling real good and hit the spots I needed to.” In regards to beating the Bears this week in his senior season. “It’s awesome to beat a competitive team like Bradshaw two in a row. We are hitting the ball really well, and our pitching has been real good too.”

The Badgers have also been playing very good defense in the field, and that is a big deal when it comes down to winning and losing ball games. “Everybody out there is just making the plays we need. It really helps me and our other pitchers knowing that we have a solid defense behind us”, added Schulz. Just in case you are keeping score, the Badgers have not made an error in their last four games. All games that they have won.

Prescott (8-1) in Grand Canyon Region and (11-8) overall, will travel on Saturday to make up an earlier scheduled game at Flagstaff, beginning at 12pm.
