From McClendon ….
“As good as we’ve been, and I hate to break the news, we’re going to lose a few games. And we’re probably going to lose a few games that people thought we should win. That’s just the way it goes. It’s baseball. I say it all the time. It’s hard to win at this level every night. So as disappointed as people are and I’m sure the world’s probably caving in tonight, we’ll be okay tomorrow.”
“You look at the numbers, you look at the paper and you think we ought to dominate tonight, but it doesn’t work that way. You still have to go out and play the game. And tonight, the Texas Rangers played a better game than we did.”
Some quotes from Miles Mikolas ….
“It was great, especially knowing coming in that they were a hot team. I was able to come in and pitch my game and start the road trip out on the right note.
“I was really controlling my fastball, and I felt like that was a big key today.”
Said he didn’t throw a slider until the fourth or fifth inning because his fastball and change were working so well: “To keep an extra pitch in my back pocket until the second time through in the lineup was key.”
On not going out for the ninth: “I could’ve also went out and given up a run righ away. So I think it was the right call. Hopefully I’ll be starting for a long time and there will be a lot of complete-game shutouts to come.”
