“I thought we played really well, like we have most of the season,” Kokoko coach Don Andrews said. “[Saturday] we pounded out more hits than we have any day of the year. We had nine hits the first game and 14 hits the second game. We got a couple good pitching performances. Second game, no errors. In Legion baseball that’s hard to do as hard as boys hit the ball.”
