“We walked two guys to get in that situation. But it was actually before then that we let it get away. We had two leads, and we let both leads get away. You just can’t do that. We’ve been really struggling with that, probably the last week, 10 days…Poor defense tonight, we didn’t really swing the bats very well, and we just didn’t have a very good game.” – Louisville manager Rick Sweet on yesterday’s loss (Louisville Courier Journal)
