LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 11: Manager Mike Redmond of the Miami Marlins takes pitcher Kevin Slowey #45 out of the game in the fifth inning during the MLB game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on May 11, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.
He’s learned so much up here. Early in the game he was really aggressive, swinging early in the count. [Hitting coach] Tino [Martinez] and myself talked to him about trying to work counts and get a little bit deeper into counts and try and get a little bit better pitch to hit. That was a great at-bat. He got a good pitch up in the zone and made him pay.
He was on ... He threw some tough pitches…He was pretty good moving the ball in and out on guys. They got the big hits and we didn’t.More quotes »
