Despite falling behind 11-0 in the first game, the Tigers rallied for four runs in the fifth and seventh innings that Lamoreaux said set the tone for the second game.
"Even though we were down the first game, our guys never gave up. They battled back. That carried over into the second game," he said. "We played very solid the second game. My seniors are really picking it up, leadership-wise. I'm very proud of them."
