I don’t really want to talk about what happened in the third inning with the Dodgers. I expressed my feelings to Russell Martin and Hiroki Kuroda. It’s over as far as I’m concerned.
This wasn’t a good game for us. They had all the momentum on their side out of the gate. They came out, got five runs early. That was crucial.
We know they’re a good team. You look back at the way the games have gone. They swept us here. We swept them at home. We have to find a way to win.
Jimmy Rollins and I had a tough time getting on base, and that hurt us tonight. We’re still up, 2-1 and we have to play tomorrow. We knew coming over here wasn’t going to be easy. We expected them to give us a series. We knew it was going to tough here. Everybody knew the series wasn’t going to be four games.
Kuroda mixed his stuff well. He keeps the ball down. He has a mid 90’s fastball that complements his slider. He did a good job shutting us down tonight. They came out early and scored a lot of runs. I can’t say they’re a better team. They’re a good team, period. We were able to win those two games at home. We lost tonight. We’ll get ready to go.
