Ole Miss Head Coach Mike Bianco

Opening statement …
“It was a great college baseball game. It was certainly well-pitched. Both starters were tremendous. We were able to scratch a couple of runs across. One of those games that you’ve been seeing across the country; it was a low-scoring game, where every pitch and every play seems to matter. We made enough pitches and got enough hits. I’m proud of the way Christian (Trent) pitched and then the way Aaron (Greenwood) closed it out for us.”
 
On Washington pitcher Jeff Brigham …
“The scoreboard seemed to read 92-96 (mph) the whole game, even late when he was around 100 pitches. Obviously, he had great velocity. It also seemed liked we had trouble getting to it. He predominantly threw fastballs. Usually if we get a guy like that, we can handle the fastballs, regardless of what the speed is. We really struggled. We struggled to get the barrel to it and bunch some at-bats together. He was terrific.”
 
On Auston Bousfield’s at-bat …
“Boz is one of those guys that has not only had a great year, but he hits the fast ball. That’s one of the reasons he’s had such a great year. He’s good with the fastball. There was a little bit of wind at that time and you weren’t sure if the rain would push it down. He got a great swing off of a 3-1 fastball.”

On J.B. Woodman’s at-bat …
“J.B, all year long but especially the last few weeks, had some big at-bats like that. Certainly that one was a big double down the line to score the first run and get the crowd into it. One of the disappointing things is when you have a crowd like that, waiting for something to happen. Last night, we were able to get the crowd into it immediately. The crowd was terrific today, even in one of those pitching-type duels.”

Ole Miss Student-Athletes

#27, Christian Trent, LHP
On pitching after 16-day break …
“It was definitely nice having the rest. I was definitely ready to get out there after being off. It felt really good to get back out there and help the team.”

On what was working today …
“My fastball was good. The slider was OK. The changeup was definitely a good pitch for me today.”

#44, Aaron Greenwood, RHP
On protecting a one-run lead …
“After the mound visit with Coach B, he just told us we really needed a strikeout, to hold the guy at third base and to not really let them put the ball in play. I was just thinking, ‘Nothing good to hit, low in the zone and get ahead early.’ That was the main thing.”

On excitement during the game …
“Especially playing with these great fans, over 10,000 people, they were unbelievable today. Being a hometown guy, to go out there and play for the team I’ve always grown up loving was awesome.”
