"He's a really good pitcher, so you spend a good amount of time getting ready for that game and whenever he's out, it changes the dynamic. You know you're going to face probably two or three different guys the rest of the way, and in this case, it was a guy we haven't seen before and a guy we haven't seen much. It's a baseball game. We lost, and they scored more runs, and really, there's no more reason to look further into it."
