Evans says he's already in touch with the Cardinals philosophies. “It's all about the winning way is what I can tell, just the small things, doing [them] right [and] showing up to the yard every day just ready to play [and] ready to get your job done," he said. "Just being around so far, the guys are pretty cool." 

Game time is set for 7:05 p.m. against Williamsport.
