"Now that's the team I know"

EVERYTHING EVERGREENS (FOX SPORTS WAUSAU-WSAU) " Now that's the team I know ," coach Dave Langhben said to me after Thursday's 7-1 win over Marshfield. It was the Evergreens best game in three weeks, and ended a three game losing streak

One of the things that's been frustrating about this year's team is that they play down (or up) to the level of their opponent. Everest is a clear-cut better team than Merrill, Wausau-West, and Wisconsin Rapids yet they have losses to all of them. Marshfield and SPASH may have more talent than Everest, but the Evergreens are 1-1 against them and have played tough both times.

Next up: Stevens Point on Tuesday at Simon Field. Evergreens pitching will get four days off, and Brady Borrell will get a chance at redemption for an earlier 1-0 loss. Everest's last three losses to SPASH have been by 4-runs, 1-run and 1-run.
