I made a mistake, ... and he gets paid to hit mistakes.
It was very hard.
We're not the kind of team that's not going to try. We want to have a winning season.
He doesn't let much bother him. He's been around the game a long time. He doesn't let little stuff get to him. A lot of guys should be like that. I need to be like that. It takes like 20 minutes, he might be a little upset, and then it's gone.
We've been in a rut the last few weeks, but every once in a while we have a game where we don't make mistakes and guys get the hits. It felt like it did in the first half.
I love the pressure.
It's one of those damned if you do, damned if you don't kind of things.
That was my first mistake.
I threw one too many fastballs, but it's my strength and I have to stick with it. It's one of those things if I throw a slider in that situation and the player gets a hit, [then someone will ask] 'Why didn't I throw the fastball?' I missed my spot by a couple of feet.
It was a major mistake. I threw one too many fastballs, but that's my strength. I've got to stick with it.
I tried to stop. The ball just kind of slipped out. The throw was high, and the rest was history. ... I'm not going to try to blame it on anybody else.
