The Miles Bulldogs are headed to the regional quarterfinals this weekend and their success this season is largely due to their hot hands on the mound. Head coach Jason Archibald, had this to say about his stacked pitching staff. "Being a one A school it's beneficial to have that many kids that can come into a game and pitch." Just how many arms can throw the ball? Well they call them the Lucky Seven. Michael Kalina, one of three starting pitchers for the Bulldogs loves the depth of their line-up. "We have a great pitching staff, we are deep, and everybody can pitch, from the bottom to the top we have above average pitching." Having all of those aces, sure comes in handy through out a lengthy baseball season. Starting pitcher, Shelton Hohensee, completely agrees, "we can rely on our pitching with anyone and we can go multiple games." Shelton also mentioned, "it lets our starters relax knowing they have someone else that can come in behind them." Although there are seven kids that can throw a strike, Miles relies on their three top dog's to guard the plate. Michael explains, "well we have good curve balls and then we have a little bit of speed, Cody throws pretty hard, and me and Shelton have good off speed pitches." Most baseball programs but a lot of emphasis on their pitching, but when you have seven different arms on the mound, it only makes sense. Coach had this to say, "they all do a really good job of controlling the strike zone, so they can go long in games." So I'm sure you all can only guess what this team stresses. Michael explains it perfectly. "Good defense, no errors, and clean baseball, that wins games."
