Head coach Jack Leggett on Scott Weismann…
"He's been our go-to guy, a guy we put a lot of stock in. He does a good job for us. Like I say, it comes down to a lot of things through the whole course of that game, not just the end of it."
On UConn's performance…
"They've got some good speed. They put a little pressure on us with that today," Leggett said. "We've got some, so we'll have some for tomorrow."
On a questionable non-strike call in the bottom of the ninth…
"He called it a ball. That's where it's going to be. We ran out of opportunities. It comes down to many things over the course of a ball game. There were a myriad of things throughout the night. We played hard, played tough, got ourselves back into the position we wanted to be. We just have to be ready to play tomorrow. We've been in this position the last couple of years in a row. We're used to this. We'll be ready for it."
Catcher Spencer Kieboom on the emotional game…
"Our season has been kind of a roller coaster from the beginning. This team, we fight. I feel like tomorrow we're going to come out even more. This kind of loss puts you in check almost and gears you up even more for the next one."
Shortstop Brad Miller on the team's struggles at the plate…
"We hit some balls hard. A couple of guys got a hold of them. They cut some balls off in the gap. I don't think it was anything in particular. It's just how it went tonight."
"We had some really good at-bats, taking them really deep into counts. We had some 3-2 counts and some big two out hits. We've just got to keep going out there and fighting."
