You just pitched your second consecutive complete game tonight, that's the first time that has happened in five years. How does it feel?
Faris: You know I just came out and threw hard and tried to do my best. The guys played behind me real well tonight. They played really good defense and then we hit the ball real well tonight. I can't thank the guys behind me enough. I just came out and hit my spots and threw it well. Coach was asking me, 'how you throwing, how you throwing?' I told him I was good and I kept going out there. He let me go.
What pitches did you feel like you had working for you tonight?
Faris: Early, I had them all working, but I didn't throw as many change ups. Fastballs, mostly curve balls and sliders. I was just mixing those up and trying to keep them off balance. That was the main thing. They are a good hitting team, and you just have to try to keep them off balance and hit your spots.
How high is your confidence level right now considering how well you've pitched this year?
Faris: I'm pretty confident right now. Even though I made a few mistakes, and they showed. That happens. You just have to keep throwing strikes and go back to the basics. The guys played behind me and I have all the confidence in the world in them and we just go out and try to get victories.
It looks like you may be auditioning for a weekend role, wouldn't you say?
Faris: I am anything. Anything they want me to do, is fine with me. Whatever they want me to do to get the job done. Starter, relief, closer, whatever they ask me to do is what I'm going to do. That's my job.
