Some of Ozzie Guillen’s Postgame comments:
"Tonight we battled and played hard. If we keep battling and playing that way, we’re going to be all right."
"Freddy really struggled early. His command wasn’t there. He was behind the hitters too much. When you are behind in the count, I don’t care how good you are, you’re going to get hit."
"We were one pitch from getting out of that inning." (eighth)
"I don’t like to lose games. If you play like we did tonight, we didn’t lose the game. They beat us."
"I told my guys to keep their heads up and come back tomorrow ready to play."
We drew a very vocal 35,748 fans to tonight’s game. When Carl Everett homered in the seventh inning, many thought it was the loudest the ballpark has been this season. Thanks, Sox fans.
Tomorrow’s pre-sale is smaller, so we need a really great walk-up tomorrow night. Wednesday’s crowd is very strong for the finale of the series.
