“We are going to do another pre-scout [on China], and they are going to do
the same for us over the next few days. We are expecting China to play

contributing. Right now, we have a lot of chemistry on every line and we

“It is a pretty crazy and amazing feeling. I am really proud, and honestly
there are not enough words to describe how it feels to [get a shutout at

second of the experience.”
