Guys weren’t dwelling on Thursday’s loss, so there wasn’t much talk about baseball on the plane. It’s just like any flight like when you lose a game on getaway day. But the mood lightened up and guys start talking about other stuff. It’s was nice to see.
We played PSP Socom II. Me, Jayson Werth and Rod Barajas waffled Adam Eaton and Cole Hamels. We played the whole trip.
Everybody was cool on the flight. We don’t have a bunch of guys who are hanging their heads. We’ve rattled off three games quite a few times this season and have done well on the road this season, too. Obviously, you’re upset after the loss, and you don’t want to go down two games to none. But once everybody had a chance for that to set in, it was business as usual on the plane, with guys talking and laughing and getting ready for today. That’s the way this team has taken it all season long. Nobody is sulking.
We’re going to go out and play our game Saturday. This team has been resilient all season. It’s the way we approach things and the personality of this team. There’s no use dwelling on a loss. It’s all about moving forward, and that’s what this team does best.
There’s not one person who doesn’t believe we can come back and win this series. It’s just a matter of us playing our game. We know what we’re capable of doing.
