Reactions to G16 - Dodgers at Astros

Blum on Billingsley:
“I have close to probably 20 at-bats off of him and I have an idea of what he’s got. Tonight it was electric. It was crazy. I had actually gotten some good hitting counts and he was still throwing 90 mph, what looked like a slider. ... His depth is pretty impressive. He had us off-balance. He made pitches and he had it all working for him.”

Cooper on Wandy:
“I thought Wandy pitched well. We just didn’t really swing it very well tonight. Give the other guy some credit. We didn’t hit very many balls hard, not many chances. But great pitching from us, I thought, from Wandy. I thought he pitched well. We just needed to figure out how to score some runs for him when he pitches those kinds of games, or even for that matter from Roy. He couldn’t really, really locate early with his fastball, but he stayed in the game. That to me shows he’s making giant strides with what we want him to do.”
