We had blown a couple of situations.
We are excited. The kids scored a bunch of runs (27) down here and played good defense. We jumped on them early.
Huge win. That (fourth) was a big inning. We didn't hit the long ball, we put the pressure on them in the infield. We scored 10 runs, I couldn't believe it.
The negative side of facing that lefty is that we've usually got five or six left-handed sticks in the lineup. But our guys are pretty good hitters and we've faced very tough competition all year. We've hit left-handers pretty well.
There just wasn't much leadership at the plate tonight. We had bright spots but then we just lost focus.
We must see our present fight right through to the very end.
It's nice to get up here and see what major league baseball is all about. I have confidence I can play here. But given the situation that we came into, being in the middle of a pennant race . . . we understood our playing time was going to be kind of sparse.
