I threw strikes and was able to go late in the game. And the defense was outstanding.

Those were game-saving plays.

I'm not nervous when I face anybody. I'm extremely nervous when I'm sitting down watching a game.

I was able to throw everything for strikes, ... I was able to make pitches when I needed to. It was a good day.

I don't make the decision so I'm not thinking about it.

I knew coming in it was either going to be one of those days where I struggled, and I was going to have to sit out there and eat up innings or I was going to pitch good.

All I could say was, `Wow,' ... It's one thing to stand here and say, `Everybody's got to step up,' but it's another thing to do it. These guys did it. ... Every pitch, every at-bat, every ball that's hit is important. It's not hard to get into the flow and realize these are the playoffs now.

Everybody knows that each game is huge, ... Our playoffs start now. They probably started a week ago, so we have to make the best of each day.
