Give them a lot of credit for what they did and what they accomplished. We came out and did what we had to do. We just came up a little bit short.

(Willis) is hard to face; it's no fun. I told them not to get caught up in all of his motion (in the windup), just react to the ball after that. He likes to throw the fastball. Eventually, you're going to get a fastball. Hopefully, he puts one in a place where you can crush it.
