Tommy Manzella's quote pretty much sums it up:
"We're paid to go out there and hit and catch the ball. If I just catch the ball, we might still be playing."
This is classic. Not, "If I just catch the ball, we win that game." It's "We might still be playing." Indicating that, twelve hours after the game has ended, the Astros and Cardinals would still be tied, 1-1.
