"It's been a dream of mine since I started playing, always trying to get to the next level and play better," he said. "It's finally fulfilled."
On Tuesday, Metz and Hurricane made one more step in fulfilling the team's goal for the season.
"I'm just trying to win a state championship just like everybody else is, and that's been the team's dream, the coaches' dream since day one, so that's what we're trying to get," Metz said.
With the win, the Redskins (15-3) have won seven of their past eight games. Since losing 7-6 to Parkersburg South on Saturday, Hurricane has scored 39 runs in two games.
"We came out with a different mindset, that we're going to crush every pitch that comes to us," he said of the offensive outpouring since the team's loss to Parkersburg South.
Metz provided his part of the offensive outburst in Tuesday's win, as he finished 2-for-2 with two doubles and two RBI. J.T. Rogoszewski also recorded a multi-hit day as he went 3-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI. Alexander Dunham led the Redskins with three RBI and finished with one hit.
Tate Brock tallied two RBI in his lone plate appearance, a two-run single. Sam Basler recorded two RBI, while Trey Dawson, Austin Hensley and Max Maxson each recorded a hit and RBI.
For Capital (6-12), it was a struggle to manufacture offense against Metz and the Hurricane defense.
"It just goes back to we have to come to the ballpark more prepared to play," Cougars Coach Robert Massey said. "If you're not ready to play and you go against a team like St. Albans or Nitro or Hurricane, you're going to take one pretty hard. If we're not ready to play to our most abilities, then it's not going to be a good night."
Catcher Austin Hupp provided Capital's lone run of the game on an RBI double in the third inning. The hit cut the Hurricane advantage to 3-1, though the Redskins regained that run in the bottom half of the third, then added 11 more in the fourth.
Hurricane visits Cabell Midland at 7 p.m. today, while Capital will look to rebound as it plays host to South Charleston at 7 p.m. today.
