"Obviously, when you're out there, you don't feel like you're living and dying with just the result of getting a hit or trying to get on base," Valencia said. "You can have good at-bats, and in this game, you can do everything perfectly right as a hitter and you can still get out. You've got to find the silver lining in that. When you hit the ball hard in this league, not only do your teammates know but that pitcher knows. And that's a win for me in my opinion as a hitter, that you have to carry forward and not bury yourself just based on the result."
