Virginia head coach Brian O'Connor
"McAnaney gave us a chance. He pitched five great innings. We then gave the ball to the same guys we have given the ball to all season long. They attacked us; it was just two good teams going at it."
"It's never as you draw it up. Sure, it was nice having the lead in the seventh, but in this game it never happens just as you expect it to [happen]."
Virginia starting pitcher Pat McAnaney:
"It was very exciting; I have never pitched in an atmosphere like that before. The crowd was amazing, and I was able to feed off of that. We worked hard as a team, and I threw hard."
Oregon State head coach Pat Casey
"The only thing we asked of our ball club today was to play. We had two games, and we wanted to play hard. It was going to come down to how much we wanted it and how hard we played. We have had kids who have been to [an NCAA Regional Championship game] before and that didn't hurt us."
On starting Daniel Turpin:
"He has had eight or nine starts before, but he is in great shape. It's NCAA Championships time, and we did what we needed to do with the guys we have. Turpin was in shape and we knew we could throw him."
On facing Virginia for a third time:
"UVa is a good club. We have played two tight ball games. They are in a regional championship for a reason."
On Darwin Barney's catch in the seventh inning:
"That was the best defensive play I have seen in my coaching career. The timing of it, the way he caught it, and the placement - all of that made a major factor in the game."
Oregon State first baseman Jordan Lennerton:
"Two games always takes a toll, but we knew this was a big game, and we were not going to let fatigue be a factor. We do what we need to do. We always have it in the back of our heads that we can win the game."
On Chris Hopkins' home run:
"It changed the character of the game. It was a complete lift--the energy in our dugout increased, and the energy in the stadium decreased."
