For the second consecutive night, a Chinooks starter was awarded the Northwoods League Pitcher of Night.
“I trusted my defense behind me, they’ve been good all year,” Anderson said. “I’ve been getting more and more confident with my pitches as the year has gone on, today I felt really confident in my pitches and that’s what helped me.”
