Postgame Comments from Ozzie Guillen
"We needed that one."
"I told my kids today … we laughed about it … that I’m not going to lose this division because I have 30,000 people helping me manage."
"I’m worn out (after a game) every day since Opening Day. It’s been a battle since Day 1."
"How can you be a loser and a choker when you win 91 games?"
From Joe Crede
"It was a fastball, inner half. I was looking fastball and it was up and out a little. It probably didn’t have the sink he wanted on it. I was able to put a swing on it and get good wood on it."
"I’ve had other walk-off home runs and game-winning hits, but it was either early in the season or we were out of it. With us in first place and a week and a half left in the season, this is probably one of the biggest hits of my career."
On his ability to collect game-winning hits: "I guess situations like that make your concentration level go that much higher. You’re in a zone, and I try to tell myself, if he makes a mistake, capitalize on it."
"Nothing is clinched yet."
