On Jose Quintana’s Performance: Really good, was it one hit? He attacked the zone. I thought his secondary pitches, breaking balls, off-speed, everything he did was really good today. Kept the ball down, obviously gave us an opportunity to stay in the ball game. Nice job, that’s Q, you guys have seen him a lot, that’s vintage Q right there.
On how big the go-ahead RBI was for Melky Cabrera: Huge. I think, you know, all those guys, but Melky’s been wanting to contribute, he’s done it a couple times now in the last week or so at home and then today, but big for him and big for all of us.
On what the win does for team morale: It picks you up. I mean there’s no doubt. I mean we’ve had a couple of tough losses, back to back tough losses, extra innings. That one today was good for us to be able to pick up. Again, to not waste Q’s outing and then Robi’s chance to go on out there and go two innings again. He did a nice job and fortunately for us we came out on top.
