Reactions to G44 - Astros @ Reds

So Roy bruised his hand in the fifth trying to stop a chopper up the middle. Did that affect his sixth inning?

Coop:
“You have to ask Roy,” Cooper said. “I have no idea. Ask Roy. You have to ask him. I don’t know. You have to ask him. Maybe it was his hand from the inning before. With your (ace) on the mound, you figure if you don’t have it you got a pretty good chance of getting it. And we let two leads slip away there. We just need him to step up to be who he’s supposed to be.”

Roy:
“I lost feeling in my hand in the sixth inning. The first two guys swung at some balls (in the sixth). That’s the only reason I got them out. If they had (taken the pitches) right there, I probably would have walked more that inning. They got a good team over there. There’s some young guys that can play. It’s not like you’re going to come in here and roll over them."

Byrdak:
“There’s no excuses. Down the middle. It was down. I didn’t quite get it out far enough. I probably paid maybe a little too much attention to Hairston over there at first. I tried to slide step, and I didn’t get the ball over the outside part of the plate.”
