Gators primed for district playoffs

“Almost every game we find a way where 13 or 14 different guys help us with the game,” Muina said. “This is a team that plays as a team.

“We hit the ball decent. We score a lot of runs. We’re not a superstar team. Up and down the lineup anybody can contribute.”

The pitching staff is paced by Gaskin, who struggled early in the season but is 5-0 in district play, along with Charlie Laird, who is 5-0 and came into an 8-8 game and through four hitless innings against Vernon.

The goal now is to continue the improvement while pointing to the district and regional playoffs. This is, Muina said, as good a team as he’s had in the past four years.

The young Gators have put themselves in a spot to some postseason damage; they need to remember how they got there, Muina said.

“We are such a balanced team, we just try to stay consistent to who we are,” Muina said. “We’ve gotten better as the year as gone by.

“We have played well at times and we’ve played well in the district obviously. But there is a still a lot of baseball left to play.”
