“Moline’s a pretty solid team,” said Tiger coach Tim Funkhouser. “The home runs we got separated us in the game.

“Trey really had a solid game in his first varsity start, and Jake (Garella) pitched well too. Matt Zeilonko had a great day too, getting a bases-loaded hit and a home run. Overall, we had a pretty good day against a good team.”
