We've still got to go out there, play these out, play hard and try to bring some playoff-type baseball into the dugout. We need to step it up and bring some passion.
That's how baseball is,.. It's one of those games where I didn't pitch good enough and we didn't hit good enough. The young guy over there did a great job.

It's the youth movement we have. A lot of young guys with a lot of passion. It brings the fun back to the game.
