The numbers were OK, but there’s room for improvement.

“Right now, I haven’t watched the film yet, but I can tell there are definitely some things I wish I would’ve done better,” Hoyer said after the game. “You know, getting the ball batted isn’t something that usually happens, so you’ve got to find a way to get it through and some of the throws that you’ve got to get on the same page as some of the guys.”
Hoyer mentioned it was tough to find a rhythm but once he got it, he needed to build on it.

“That first one out, you always kind of have got to get your feet underneath you and get a few throws in and get feeling comfortable,” he said. “I didn’t feel like I did a good job in that tonight. I’ve got to do a better job of taking a few easy throws in the beginning and get a good rhythm.”
