Showalter on starter Jason Hammel: "He had one real crisp inning. I thought he was getting ready to have another one, maybe give us five or six, but he hit Willingham with an 0-2 breaking ball. I think he's having a little trouble repeating his delivery right now. He's getting out of his delivery a little bit. Talking to Rick and watching, there's some mechanical things you watch for with each pitcher once you get to know them. He'll do it for a few pitches and then he'll just get out of it. Rick was talking about his work day and warming up before the game as good as you'd want to see any guy warm up, but sometimes the emotions when you get out in a game kind of work against you."
Hammel on his outing: "It's been a grind from the get-go, honestly. Really not much to say about myself. The way the team battled back after I put them in a deep hole; the bullpen to come in and hold it strong there. And then, like I said last week, you stick around long enough, these guys are going to put up some runs. I mean, nine runs in four innings from these guys, that's impressive."
