This seemed like a tough loss for this team, you guys were up 6-1, and then you end up losing 11-6.
Leggett: Yes this was a tough one. We had our opportunities tonight. We were up 6-1 and we couldn't hold the lead. We didn't pitch tonight at all. We gave them a chance to get back in it when we had a 6-1 lead. Their kid came in and did a good job pitching. He threw breaking ball after breaking ball after breaking ball. We just couldn't piece anything together offensively after the third inning and we had a couple of chances.
How suprised were you by that? You've been pitching so well lately.
Leggett: I know. We just didn't pitch well tonight and we've got to come back tomorrow ready to go. We were ready to play, the kids were exciting about playing, we just didn't do what we had to do on the mound. That's the bottom line, there's nothing else to say.
How early could you tell that Lumsden didn't have his stuff tonight?
Leggett: The first inning- he got by with the one run, it could have been worse there. He was behind in the count a little bit, and he was walking guys. In that last inning there we had to make a change. But in a situation where you are up 6-1, you have to be aggressive and just go right after them. We didn't get that done tonight.
You had to use Jackson and Sipp tonight, that's probably not what you wanted to heading into the heart of this series.
Leggett: No I didn't want to do that at all. That was something we wanted to try an avoid. Now we've got to go to plan B. We'll have to extend some of our other guys. Hahn, Hogan, Cribb, Sipp hopefully on Monday. We've got some new things to think about now than what I was thinking in the third inning we were ahead 6-1.
