ST. LOUIS, MO - MAY 18: Norichika Aoki #7 of the Milwaukee Brewers catches a fly ball hit by Matt Holliday #7 of the St. Louis Cardinals in the first inning at Busch Stadium on May 18, 2013 in St. Louis, Missouri.

You have to stay the course and can’t be consumed by a handful of results. We had to remind each other of that.More quotes »
