Offensively, I was pleased with way we've swung the bats the last two days. Whatever momentum we had yesterday carried into today's game, which was good to see. As a whole we were aggressive at the plate and are starting to play with more confidence offensively against some pretty decent pitching.

That's been our way all year. We kind of sit around and wait for something to happen. We've got bats. We can hit. We've just got to get them going earlier, and we've got to lock up our defense.
Matt Smith

It's starting to warm up a little outside and I think our bats are about to come around a little bit. Our bats have struggled at the plate and that's no secret. So it's always good when it's warmer out because the swings look a little freer.

What can I say? We just didn't give up. We kept swinging the bats well. It took off a lot of the pressure coming back from down three with two innings left. That was huge for us.

I took bad at-bats. I was maybe trying to do too much. Definitely not a good way to go about it.

#Bats

I'd rather deal from a good problem of having too many qualified guys to get at-bats for rather than be caught naked.
Jon Daniels
#Bats

As a team, we had a real good spring. Guys swung the bats real well, then all of a sudden everybody went into a slight batting slump together and right now they seem to be working their way out of that and hitting the ball consistently. We've hit some balls hard and haven't had any luck with the hits falling in, but now they're starting to fall in and that's the difference in winning.
Don Buford

Aaron Rowand
I know we didn't like him a whole bunch when we played against him in Minnesota, (him) stepping on bats and throwing elbows and stuff like that, but that's him. He's a guy you love to have when he's on your team, but probably not a guy you enjoy playing against.
Aaron Rowand
#Bats

We never got in a groove with the bats. Our hitters' timing may have been a bit off, but you have to tip your hat to the quality of pitching we saw in this round. It was better than I expected it to be.
Buck Martinez
#Bats

I normally get no more than 35 at-bats during spring so I'm really on target as far as that goes. I've been playing for a long time, so stepping up from Triple-A to the big leagues is no big deal. It's all about focus.
Frank Thomas

We've been swinging the bats well up and down the lineup. Everyone's been contributing. We're coming up with some big two-out hits, and it's someone new every ball game. And that's the way you generate some offense and score some runs.
