QUOTE BOAT

“We have a primarily left-handed lineup against a tough lefty pitcher throwing the way he was – not the best match-up for us. You saw some textbook pitching out there today.”- Norfolk interim manager Bobby Dickerson on Travis Wood (The Virginian-Pilot)

“He located all of his pitches, fast, slow, up, down. He had command of the strike zone all night and was locating everything.”- Norfolk catcher Michel Hernandez on Wood
(The Virginian-Pilot)
