I'm just trying to hit it, that's it. I was told a long time ago when I first came up, we're producers, not directors. All you can do is hit it, you can't control where it goes and if it happens to go somewhere, fine.
I hadn't seen Kalen since he was probably 5 or 6, but when I was watching the Series on TV, I noticed the last name and tried to figure out how to get in touch with them. My mom called Williamsport (Pa.) and we got a hold of each other that way.
J.P. has brought in pitchers and hitters to help out and that's just what we're going to try and do. We're going to try to put this team back to the level it's been before and the level it deserves to be.
You can't control Mother Nature, but the conditions were unsafe in the top of the fifth inning. Obviously, that team was probably more dangerous since they were playing defense. However, nobody should've been on the field. And it's frustrating on top of all this that we end up getting a loss. That just doesn't sit well.
He was throwing hard but he made a couple of mistakes and we were able to take advantage. You pop those mistakes up and it's a different ball game. Fortunately for us we were able to put good swings on the ball and get some knocks and when we had the chance to drive in runs, we were able to do it.
