We hit some balls outside deep, we hit some balls inside over the middle, we hit some short passes, we hit backs out of the backfield. We did some things that we have not done in a while, and I give Reggie a great deal of credit for making those reads and getting the ball to the right guys,

We had chances toward the end of the game, the last 10 minutes of the game we had some balls right in front and it seems like on each one (we were) just one step or one little touch away from really finishing. Give credit to Woods Cross, they did play a pretty good game.

Bob Melvin
It was good to see him from the second inning on really have all his pitches. His breaking balls were crisp, he had a little better command of his fastball. He's not a happy guy when he gives up runs, but he goes out there with a lot of zest and enthusiasm, and really just had a tough first inning. The good ones don't let innings affect them.

It's a bummer when it rains like that. It makes the balls wet and kind of slippery. Everything is more difficult. That's football. You can play in rain, sleet, snow. It doesn't matter. Today, we just got better at throwing in the rain.
