“We need to do a better job of making contact at the plate,” he said. “We’re still not in good shape, but we’re better than we were in March. We’re entering a stretch that can get us moving in the right direction.”
The Dolphins evened their record at 6-6 and improved to 5-0 in Western League play with Monday’s five-inning blowout.
Amari Yolas led the attack with a single, a triple, three RBIs and two runs scored; Vincent Langdon and Jake Moore each had two hits, two runs and two RBIs and Nate Sterling, Tate Foxson, Nate Akiba, Ryan Johnson and Troy Winkenhower each added a hit an RBI. Kyle Grassl allowed four hits with seven strikeouts.
