"I think that's the difference in major league pitchers, guys who can have success out there and keep you engaged in a game. … But that's what you like to see in pitchers. They're not always going to go out there, and everything's [not always] going to be perfect, but he spoiled us with a real high level of pitching for a while. Today, I think, to keep us engaged in that game, when he wasn't carrying his normal stuff, was impressive for me."
