What a fun game tonight. I know we didn’t win, but it was just a great game.
First, I think I’ve got to tip my hat to Jamie Moyer. He’s going to be 46, and just think how awesome what he did tonight was. He has a great story that I think would inspire anybody. He a real example of professionalism, tenacity and hard work.
I have to give Jamie a lot of credit tonight. He’s a great pitcher. He’s unbelievable. He’s out there throwing outside corner, inside corner, and looking back at my game against him, I wondered how many pitches I got in the zone to hit. And I could count just one, and that was the first one I saw. It kind of caught me off guard; as soon as I looked up, it was coming. So I just took it. And that’s the best pitch I got to hit all night. He was going off the corners, inside and outside.
Once Jamie left the game, we managed to come back and tie it, and I was thinking we had a good chance to win it, but then they took it on a swinging bunt. And that’s the cool thing about this game, you can win on a hit like that or a home run. I’m sure the Phillies’ fans had a blast today with that. Unfortunately for us, we didn’t. But we just turn the page and get back after them tomorrow. Good break for them, bad for us.
