We just ask that this is not delayed a long time.

The first game, (Phoenix) had all the chances and didn't take advantage, and we got the clutch hits. It's good to play tight games, and obviously it's better to win them, but it's tough to beat a quality team when you give up that many chances.

Obviously any property we lose, we lose revenue.

We didn't put any extra pressure on ourselves because we were coming off a loss, but it's nice to play well and get that taste out of your mouth as soon as you can.

We did some good things, particularly offensively. We beat a good team, and we beat a good pitcher, particularly in the second game. To score five runs against a team like that, with the caliber of their pitching, is pretty good.

I don't why we struggled offensively. Maybe we were a little rusty. We hadn't played in five days, and at this point in the year, we're not used to not playing for five days.

We didn't do a good job of making adjustments at the plate.

When you swing the bats like that, you're going to be pretty tough to beat. It was a good day. The hitters did a good job. It wasn't like their pitchers were slopping it up there.

When you can score early, it takes away the pressure. We just went up there and got good pitches to hit and put good swings on them.
