“I thought they both looked good.  They threw pretty good strikes. Their stuff was good. Homer was 91 to 94 (mph) the entire game. He threw some good off-speed stuff. He pitched well.” – Louisville manager Rick Sweet on yesterday’s outings by Homer Bailey and Aroldis Chapman (Louisville Courier Journal)

“We have not been a good finishing club.  We have opportunities, and we don’t get it done. We’ve got to get more consistent with our entire game.” – Sweet (Louisville Courier Journal)
