"Just desire, just wanting to prove we're not a bad ball club," he said, "that when we play that we are pretty good, and we did play pretty good except for the errors. We're really young, so that's to be expected some. We'll hope to hit the ball like that (Thursday) and play better defense."
Now, Logan looks ahead to face St. Albans. The teams will play a best-of-three series beginning today.
"They're a fine team," Robinette said of the Red Dragons. "Good offense, good defense. We're coming to play, we're coming to battle, and we'll let the chips fall where they may."
For Nitro, the loss marks the end of a disappointing season.
"We just wasn't in the ball games tonight," Nitro Coach Joyce Midkiff said. "We've played with these teams all year long and tonight just wasn't our night.
"A few times we were on that verge, but like I said it was a very emotional night, just not our night."
The season continues for Logan, though, as the Wildcats look to keep that season-best play rolling.
"We had a few really bad games and to come into this like we did hitting the ball, it was great," Toppings said. "We've been practicing a lot and it finally clicked. I guess when we really needed it, we had the heart."
