Nazareth pitcher John Hughes reacts after his team got out of the third inning unscathed during the Class 3A state baseball semifinal game against Sycamore in Joliet Friday.

“Second and third, nobody out, that’s the guy we want on the mound. I have the utmost confidence that he was going to get out of that situation because I’ve seen him do it so often.”

—  Lee Milano, Nazareth coach
