It was kind of frustrating the way we hit the ball tonight. We worked their starter and got him out of the game and had a good chance of winning. We probably should have scored more runs. They got the key hits and walks in big situations. We played pretty well, that’s just the way baseball is. We have to come back tomorrow with the same swag and do it over again.
It was a battle of the bullpens. We hit, they hit. They just won tonight. You can’t just score one run and think you can beat them. I’m not worried about Clayton Kershaw, he just lost his groove for a second. He’ll bounce back and do even better than he did tonight.
I like the way we kept coming back. We don’t ever give up. That’s the mentality that had us win 95 games and we have to have the same mentality tomorrow and try to get a win. I like our chances with Vicente Padilla. He pitched well in St. Louis. We’ve just got to hit the ball and get some runs for him.
The Phillies haven’t changed a bit. They find ways to win, like we do. We’ve got to find a way to get more wins than them.
