"it's a lot of pressure from me, a lot of pressure. you know it's fun, to come over here and play stewartville, we know they're a good team, the put the ball in play, they're fundamentally sound." so which brother would get the win? the tigers drew first blood off a cardinal error. some more big hits would give stewartville a comfortable lead. but lewiston altura would scratch and claw their way back. and this would turn the tide. a grand slam to tie the game in the 7th inning. the cardinals would grab another run to win it 11 to 10, giving cory the win over his brother. but wasn't about wins or losses, the strikeouts, hits.... or diving catches, even if the pair joked about a friendly wager.
