Reaction to ST6: Astros v. Mets

Brian McTaggart has some reaction to today's win over the Mets.

Myers:
"The first inning I struggled a little bit making an adjustment to the mound and things me and Arnie worked on in the bullpen. You go from different mound to different mound, and it just took me a little bit longer to make an adjustment. I was able to make the adjustment and it was great. I made some good pitches. The one David Wright hit was down and he put a good swing on it."

Mills, on Arias' injury:
"He's had it kind of bothering him. They said it was feeling pretty well. He said he could have pitched out there, but what was coming out we didn't think it would be safe. The doctor's going to take a look at him and we'll go from there."

Mills, on the win:
"It was a very well-played game. We made some pitches when we had to and the guys swing the bats, we ran the bases and we made some big plays on the double plays. It's fun to see a game played like that and the guys are rewarded for their efforts. The hitting is going to come. We can look at that as we've got a good ballclub and these guys can swing the bat, but it was things like the base running that was good today, the defensive plays were outstanding, the extra effort. They did a super job."

I like the Mills outlook. Instead of Coops, "we are going to have to score runs to win." its "The hitting is going to come." Now I'm not going to brown nose the guy like Blum, but I definitely am digging the optimism.
