Virginia vs Oregon State Charlottesville, Va. Regional 5 June 2007
Virginia head coach Brian O'Connor
"It's frustrating to lose the regional championship at home. I felt like our guys played hard. I've said it all along; Oregon State has a good ball club and they proved it again today. We had opportunities to have bigger innings and we just didn't do it. I'm disappointed for our seniors in that they will not be able to put on our uniform and play for us again."
"Our seniors have played in four regionals, hosting three of them. They have every reason to be proud."
"I felt that we would need to score eight or nine runs in one of these games to win. We just didn't get the hits we needed to get that done. They [Oregon State] did a nice job."
"Casey Lambert has pride, and he wanted the ball. He gave us a chance to get to this point, and I am not going to second guess my decision to start him. He has done just about more for this club than anyone, and he deserved that opportunity to start."
Virginia first baseman Sean Doolittle:
"It hasn't sunk in quite yet; it's a tough one to swallow. I felt like we were all fighting for them [Guyer and Marsh]; they didn't get a chance to contribute on the field, but they were contributing in the dugout nonetheless."
"We were not able to get the clutch hits. Their pitchers were awesome; they gave a gutsy performance. We have to tip our caps to them."
Oregon State head coach Pat Casey
"Our kids played their hearts out. We beat a very good Virginia team. We thought it would come down to who played the hardest, who fought the most, and who would be able to stay with it for nine innings."
"I knew we could defend and pitch. If you take care of your pitchers during the season; they will be able to take care of you come the end of the season. They were able to do that, and that's what helped us get through."
Oregon State pitcher Joe Paterson
"I felt good. We were ready to go, thanks to our athletic trainer. Stretching, heat, etc - whatever it took for us to be ready, he got us there. I think were running on adrenalin."
Oregon State shortstop Darwin Barney
"We knew they were going to throw a lefty. Lambert had shut us down earlier. Sure, there might have been a slight fatigue factor, but our guys dug deep. Stutes pitched really well for us. "
Oregon State third baseman Lonnie Lechelt:
"I think our experience helped us out a lot. We have had guys who have been in these games before, and I was able to watch from the dugout, so we have all experienced the emotions before."
