Final Stats |
Head Coach Jim Schlossnagle
On Preston Morrison:
"He is very similar to [former Horned Frog] Trent Appleby
. He has pitched as well, if not better, than him so far."
On Michael Resnick:
"He's working some things through on his swing, and going into the season we weren't sure how much he was going to play. Brett had a good at-bat with two outs and nobody on and Davy drew a walk and it's about keeping trust in the next guy."
On the series and the game:
"We walked one guy and made one error in two games. I thought the story of the day was defense. The other day we tried to turn a double play we shouldn't have turned and that cost us a run. Defense was the missing piece from our team last year and I'm really proud of Davy Wright, Brett Johnson and our whole infield. This is a new team with a lot of guys who weren't supposed to be playing. Jantzen Witte should have been at third and Derek O'Dell at shortstop, Josh Gonzales at second and Kevin Cron at first. Going into the season this was supposed to be our second-team infield but sometimes things happen for a reason."
"It felt pretty good. I went out there and just tried to do my job. I was a little shaky, but once I got that first strikeout I settled down."
"When I saw the pitch, I told myself to get the hands there and let the bat do the rest. My first at-bat, on Friday, was a little overwhelming [from the big crowd], and today's was too, but I just did what I had to do."
