They're going to get better as the season goes on. Next year, I'll be chopping at the bit to watch these guys throw.

Christian did a great job of changing speeds. After that first inning, he kept us off balance mixing the fastball and he spotted his off-speed pitches so well, we were behind in the count.

I said before the season that this team would hit 40 home runs this year.

I told the guys this was a pivotal game. If we beat them, we're tied with them and they have to play Auburn next week.

They kind of ran rampant on us. Stealing of home hurt.
