It was 6-nothing when McIntosh again singles to left, Dakota Potter scores, Norwood shuts out Sturgeon and advances to the championship game 10-nothing.
"There's always going to be nerves when you play in the Final Four," said Norwood pitcher Cody Hull. "But we came out and started out hitting the ball really early. And that gave me some cushion and I owe my teammates a lot of credit for that. Definitely coming out and scoring early takes a lot of pressure off you.."
"We kind of kept the rah-rah to a minimum," said Norwood senior Chase McIntosh. "We just wanted to come up here and ultimately we needed to win this game to get to the game we wanted to play. We really kept focus this week and obviously it showed in the game."
