Lafayette pitcher Matt Kamine
On giving up four runs in the first:
"All you have to do is move to the next inning and continue to pitch.
Lafayette center fielder James Conrad
"We got beat at our own game. We have a good hitting squad; we don't have any weak spots. "
"I give him [Doolittle] credit. They went out and scored four and gave him something to work with. They got another one, and they had five. We scored one."
"Tomorrow we will have to come out with the same attitude we approached today with: to win."
Lafayette head coach Joe Kinney:
"Letting up four runs us not a great way to get started. We had some opportunities early; we had four or five men left on base, and we struck out looking twice."
On Sean Doolittle
"Doolittle did not beat himself tonight, that's for sure. He went out and pitched with guts and talent, and he let his defense make some great plays. We knew he had velocity, and that he was going to compete. He did that."
"I think it might have been a combination of the environment and some nerves. He had been throwing well in the pen. He's not going to wow you as a pitcher, and he has a tremendous out pitch. He has been pitching complete games for us all year long."
Virginia pitcher Sean Doolittle:
"[Guyer's home run] was a huge momentum boost. I had four runs to work with off the bat. I was able to attack the zone and get some quick innings, which allowed us to rest the pen."
"I felt better as the game went on. I was glad I was able to go deep so we could preserve the pen."
Virginia left fielder Brandon Guyer:
"He gave me a good pitch to hit. It was a mistake, and he didn't make many of those tonight. I knew the way we have been pitching lately it would be a momentum boost for us. I was just trying to put the ball in play and I'm glad I could help the team."
"He was excellent. We just needed to get a couple runs, and fourtunately I was able to help out."
Virginia right fielder Brandon Marsh:
"We [the lead-off and no. 2 hitters] just want to get on base so the 3-4-5 batters can hit us in. I take it one at-bat at a time."
Virginia head coach Brian O'Connor:
"We are excited to win the first game. It was great to get it over with. We played a good game, but it was not our best. It was great that Doc was able to pitch deep to be able to conserve our pen. We did not take advantage of some situations, and we will have to be better tomorrow."
"Guyer's hit allowed Doolittle to attack the zone. In general, we are pitching now as well as we have been all season long. Our team defense is strong, and our pitching is strong as well."
On Beau Seabury:
"Beau is a great catcher. There's a reason teams have limited attempts on stealing bases on him. He has a great arm and can control the running game. They were overly aggressive on us, and we were able to take advantage of that."
