From the beginning I just didn't have it. I was out of control.
I thought it was just a fly ball. I made the pitch where I wanted it, and he just dropped the bat right on the ball.
Since that guy from L.A. (Oscar Robles) hit that pitch that bounced (earlier this month off Rob Tejeda), nothing surprises me anymore.
It was enough. It's always exciting to pitch in games like this. I'm just trying to make the most of it. The bottom line is we won.
We had maybe a little flooding in the backyard.
You'll run across games like that that you will lose. You just have to move on. I could tell from the first inning that guys were pumped.
[Saturday] was a very tough loss, and we bounced back great. Give [catcher] Todd [Pratt] a lot of credit back there. He did a great job moving around and setting up my pitches.
That was huge. There was no doubt in my mind that was the right decision. You have to go for it in a situation with the bases loaded. If anything, I had one or two good innings left.
I know everyone in here knows we can play with those guys. We aren?t intimidated by them one bit.
I like big games, ... Beyond that, I can't explain it.
It's funny how things balance themselves out. Funny things happen in this game.
Patience is the biggest thing. Just seeing Wolf and talking to him, he understands that. His attitude is great.
Patience is the big thing, no doubt. Just seeing him and talking to him, I think he understands. His attitude is great.
I'm just guessing they wanted to take a look at some more guys over there. I really wanted to work on getting my slider down. The last game it was just so-so, and today it was much better. Today, I had a better tempo and it was much better.
