He pretty much matched Dontrelle for the most part and kept us in the game.
This, ... shows the fire of this team.
You're not trying to hit home runs off that kind of guy, you're just trying to put the ball in play and make things happen, and I think we did a good job of that,
Lucky me, We'll see how it goes.
Hitting at the top of the order is a good thing. You get more at-bats. I'm excited to see how this develops.
Especially being in the middle of the lineup with Ryan behind me, if I get on base, that could be an easy two runs right there. We can definitely hit home runs, but you have to win games in other ways, too.
We were down in the game by a lot, but we still had that fire. We were rooting for him big time.
It was very exciting. I knew the game was out of reach at that point, but it was fun to watch. It's all about being positive and taking something out of a loss. We'll take that, relax on the day off and be ready for Wednesday.
I really wasn't sure what it was going to be like, but it was everything I expected. The intensity was up. We didn't play that well, but I'll take the experience. I know we haven't been to the playoffs, but we had a playoff run last year and it was intense then. It was very similar out there.
I'm hearing it from all the guys. I expect to. I deserve it. I would give myself grief. If someone else did that, I'd tell them about it.
We were mounting a comeback, the crowd was intense and we were fired up at the time. I hit that ball really well, just not well enough. What are you going to do
I guess it's all downhill from here, right
It was good to see him. I forget even what I said, but it was good to see him.
It was a little weird.
He's not fun to face. I always thought he could do the job. Now that the time's come, he's going to do a great job. You never know what he's going to throw.
It's a great honor. You're going to see good pitchers earlier, so it should make you better. You have to prepare yourself a little bit more, but that makes you that much better in the long run. Guys have that intensity early.
I'm more excited than anything just to be around those guys, guys who are winners and are very successful. It will only help. They're winners, they've won batting titles.
It doesn't matter what happened in the past. It's all about the next three days.
It's pretty self-explanatory. If we play well, we know what our picture is. If we don't play well, we'll know what our picture is.
I was on the top step. I had a good feeling.
He's the guy that starts everything. He's a big part of our team.
We have the biggest game of the year Sunday, and we have to win.
Any loss like that is devastating. Especially with five games to go.
We put it to them late in the game, ... It was huge.
We put it all together, ... We still have three more to go. There's definitely still a shot. Obviously, we need a little help.
