Game 19: Rock Cats 4, Senators 2

Manager Brian Daubach on the elusive 27th out with Gilberto Mendez:
“He had two outs, two strikes on three straight guys. They put some good at-bats on. That 27th out is tough to get. Give them credit. I thought he made some pitches they just found holes.”

Manager Brian Daubach on Pedro Severino’s maturity:
“He takes it personally when we give up 13 runs and 13 hits. Because he knows that’s the most important part of his job. He had a great night with the bat and even though he wasn’t making the pitches, he feels responsible for it. That’s a great attribute for a catcher to have…It’s great for somebody that young to know who he is and know his responsibilities and stick to it. It’s been impressive so far.”

Game 17: Fightin’ Phils 4, Senators 3

Manager Brian Daubach on Paul Demny’s two-out pitch to Gustavo Pierre:
“It’s the second game we’ve lost this year with two outs and nobody on late in the ballgame. You’ve got to make a guy beat you the other way right there. You have to make a better pitch in that situation…If he hits a home run to the opposite field, you tip your cap to him. We’re in a no doubles situation and almost three hits have to beat you if they don’t leave the yard. We have to use the big part of the field there.”

Tim Alderson, Sammy Solis, and Gilberto Mendez outduel Aaron Nola

Manager Brian Daubach on the performance of his veteran starter:
“I was really pleasantly surprised with his breaking ball. That’s the best one we’ve seen this year. And on a night like tonight, it’s tough to grip a breaking ball. He worked ahead and threw a lot of really good breaking balls as the game wore on. Huge effort on a night like tonight.”

Daubach on Sammy Solis’ second outing:
“The guy has been through a lot. We going to keep him in the bullpen and see if we can keep him healthy…It’s good to just see him out there, having fun, and he feels healthy. This might be a role he excels in.”

Daubach on the injury to Randolph Oduber:
“It was just kind of a weird injury. You feel terrible for Odie. He was getting a chance to play in his first real go-round at Double-A. He’s a kid I’ve had a couple of different years and he’s never complained despite not playing as much as he wanted. He’s just a good teammate and a great kid. It was a pick from the pitcher to the shortstop and surprised him a little bit. He went back feet first and it’s just kind of an awkward slide when you do that into a base. I’m not sure if his cleat caught, but I think that’s what happened. Unfortunately, broke his leg and he had to have surgery. We wish him the best. I know it’s going to be a tough rehab for him. Knowing Odie he’s a really tough kid and if anybody can do it, he can.”
