“My pitching strategy was to mix my pitches early. Slow their hitters‘ bats down,” Gray said. “We had them where we wanted. I just didn't throw a couple of pitches with conviction when I needed to.”
GRAY MOVES UP STRIKEOUT LIST
In the fifth inning, Gray struck out LSU's JaCoby Jones to pass Geoff Geary (1998) for third most strikeouts in a season. Gray fanned Ty Ross to start the eighth to move ahead of Daniel McCutcheon (2006) for second-most all-time with 147.
