"I think with the caliber of arms that we have throughout the rotation, it kind of builds like a competition in the staff, which I think increases their ability to do what they do," Shorebirds manager Buck Britton said. "They all have ability. They can all throw three pitches for strikes, whatever it is. They all have the talent. But it's that internal competition that brings out even more out of a pitcher, and I think that's what we're seeing out of these guys. Every day, you want to go out there and be better than the guy before you — and it's translated into some really good things."
