Japan's Kosei Ono (R) is tackled by Hong Kong's James Cooper (L) during the Asian Five Nations rugby tournament in Hong Kong on April 27, 2013.
We've been able to (hit) here and there but not on a consistent basis ... We have too many runners left on base, and we are swinging the bat at balls out of the strike zone. We had a situation (Tuesday) where one batter walked on four pitches, and the next batter takes the first pitch for a ball then swings at a ball out of the strike zone. That's just a lack of focus.
The biggest thing both starting pitchers did was keep the leadoff hitter off the base so they couldn't set up sacrifice bunt situations ... We buckled down with two outs, and we were able to get off the field. Whenever we get two outs, we talk about it being third-and-long and you've got to get the defense off the field.More quotes »
