On UNC's comeback success –

It is a sign of a good ball club and it shows. Look at their bullpen and it is indicative of a good team. Not just offensively, but they can do it all. I'm not disappointed in our ball club, I am just disappointed in one play.

When you play a team like North Carolina that is ranked in the top five nationally, you have to make plays and pitch well. The depth of their bullpen shows the depth of their team.


On the comeback -

On UNC's big innings -

They are the kind of club we are. They got some runs early and we didn't. They kept pounding in runs and they did a good job coming back.


On his performance -

My changeup was good at times. My slider was good at times. I tried to get ahead and I feel I could have gotten ahead more. Just getting behind in the count and then they got runs early and that made a difference.
