“A total team letdown.”

Before I head out after that 4 hour and 26 minute marathon, here’s some tidbits from Jim Riggleman after the game.
“There was some ugly things, and there was some great things.
“It was a total team letdown, starting with myself right on down … We all had a real direct hand in that loss.”
On Bloomquist:
“Willie’s in bad shape. Willie’s hurting. He really pulled it good.”
On RRS in the sixth:
“I probably should have gotten him out of there a hitter or two before.”
And on RRS overall:
“He made some great pitches, he was facing a tough lineup and did a good job. We just couldn’t make some plays for him.”
On Beltre’s double play:
“Any pitch hit in the infield is going to be a double play. He hit it hard. He squared it up and hit it good. Adrian Beltre can do no wrong in my eyes. He’s just the ultimate professional.”
