Game #6 Quotes
Ray Tanner, head coach
On today's game:
Against a quality opponent, you can't give up double digit hits, nine walks, and some key errors. Evansville is a good team, and they capitalized on it. We had a terrible thirdwe failed to make some plays and they took advantage. It was nice to get three runs to open the game, but I knew it would not be enough.
Four errors will do you in [in the third inning]. When you walk nine guys, that will get you. We were hitting the ball well tonight. We made some loud outs in the first couple of innings, and we made some base-running errors because we were being aggressive.
On the pitching situation tomorrow:
We will go back to the hotel and discuss it. [Wynn] Pelzer is available, and [Andrew] Cruse has some innings in him, and [Chase] Tucker is available as well. There's a chance Pelzer can start, but it's something we will talk about back at the hotel.
On playing Evansville again tomorrow (5 June)
Our guys will be ready to play tomorrow.
Neil Geisler, Third base
Schedule says we play tomorrow, so that's what we are going to do. The season is on the line tomorrow, and that should explain what we are facing.
Forrest Beverly, starting pitcher for Carolina
It felt like things were going well at first, and a lot of bad things just happened. A lot of it was me; I didn't do the things I needed to do. I needed to keep pitching like it was 0-0; I needed to make pitches.
Dave Schrage, head coach
On shortstop Robbie Minor:
Robbie's been a big game player for us. Last summer in their summer league, he hit a homer. He hadn't had a homer all last summer. Then he hit the game-winning home run in the championship game. When I saw him in high school, he was the point guard for the basketball team. They went to the elite eight (in Illinois) which was very tough for them to do, because it's such a small school. When I went and saw him play basketball, I said. `I've got to have that kid.' He was the heart and soul of their team. Obviously he can play a little baseball. He loves the big games.
On 18-batter third inning:
We got some breaks today, let's be honest. I think Virginia made six errors, and South Carolina made four today. Obviously the biggest play of the game was (Jim) Viscomi's tapper in front of the mound.
Our team's very opportunitistic. When the ball went into to centerfield, that got us going.
On tomorrow's winner-take-all game:
These guys were saying they're tired. If it were up to me, I'd play in a half hour from now. The way we've been playing on a day like today. Sometimes it's an advantage to turn around right away and play.
Tomorrow will be one ball game, but we'll be ready.
Kasey Wahl, first baseman
On 12-run third inning:
I don't know. It's as tough for me to describe as it is for you. We just went up there with a lot of determination. We knew we needed to get some runs. Even though we had eight at the rain delay, we knew we needed more, because their offense is so powerful. They can hit the ball whenever. No runs are enough against a team like (South Carolina).
On coming from behind against Lehigh then knocking off Virginia and South Carolina:
It's been a lot on our bodies definitely, because it's a lot of baseball. They've been hard-fought games for us. We've got to put everything out there; otherwise, we're going home. It's been great that our bats have com alive and stayed hot.
Mitch Prout, pitcher
On playing four games in 32 hours:
Four games in 32 hours will surely wear you out, probably more for the hitters than the pitchers. They're doing a great job for us. Fifteen runs against South Carolina is pretty huge.
