People were treating “Like a Ross” last Saturday in Mitchell’s complete game win over Georgia. I hope you enjoy.
One big thing to watch: Ross Mitchell was really good last Saturday against Georgia in his first start of the season. The thing to keep an eye on is if he can build off of that start and continue his great pitching.
