With the bases loaded in the fourth inning, no outs and his team up 9-0, Maiden pitcher Jason Gantt put faith in himself, and trust his head coach.

“I had to trust my pitches,” Gantt said. “Coach was calling my pitches. He came out to the mound and talked to me. He told me to trust my stuff and to trust him.”

The senior listened to his coaches’ advice, earning a strikeout on his next pitch.

Gantt eventually got out of the inning unscathed, leading Maiden (7-4, 4-1) to a 10-0 mercy rule victory at home against East Burke (3-6, 1-3).
