Reactions to G31 - Padres at Astros

Cooper, on innings 6-8:
“You’re sailing along, and all of a sudden you hit a low spot, a high spot, a low spot. It was a pretty big roller coaster up and down.”

Hunter Pence:
“The big at-bats, Michael Bourn getting on and getting us a little momentum and putting more pressure on the pitcher, because now he has a base stealer on first. They’ve got a lot to think about it. It changes the at-bat completely.”

Cooper, on Lee:
“Carlos knows how to drive in runs. His swing is back. If there is a guy on second base, that’s probably the one guy I want up (at the plate). He knows how to get it done, even with two strikes.”

“Every day I feel better on my knee. I’m not thinking about my knee anymore. I feel good and confident the way I’m pitching.”

Nick Hundley, on the passed ball:
“I need to make those plays. I think if I catch those balls, we would have won the ballgame.”
