This is the time of year that I really enjoy.

It's fun to be able to go out there and feel like you have a better chance of having success.

You never like to end a day like that, ... But this is my 31st start and I finally got double-digit wins, so I will take it. I love this time of year because every game counts.

I talked to her and asked if this was an appropriate relationship to have with someone you cover. To me, it's a conflict of interest. I don't think you can have a relationship with someone you're paid to report on. She said she had no problem with it.

It's a team game. It wasn't like Valentin tried to let the ball go through his legs to see how far it would get by him. That 0-2 changeup was my mistake. I take responsibility for letting the guy score on an 0-2 pitch.

This isn't July, so do the math. If San Diego plays .500 ball, we can only lose five more games the rest of the year. It's going to be kind of tough. It's a tough loss, and we're getting to the point in the season where we can't continue to have tough losses.

You have to give our guys credit coming back like that. We need a stretch like this to get us back in the running.

Early on in the game, we tried to pitch a lot of left-handers inside for strikes, which allows you to pitch them away later in the game. I'm probably pitching more instead of being one-dimensional -- you know, sinker, sinker, sinker.
