“Matthew Hays pitched a great game against a well coached Dekalb team,” Hooks Hornets head baseball coach Tony Hight said. He (Hays) gave us 5 strong innings and the defense played well behind him. We still have a lot of work to do and have things that need work but we are taking it one game at a time and our focus shifts to new Boston on a Tuesday.”
