Maineri: the breaks of baseball were against us

LSU Head Coach Paul Maineri

Opening Statement
“It was obviously a very tough loss for our guys. It was a heck of a game though. We seemingly had the game in hand, and I felt like we should have been up more than that. We were crushing balls all over. Our guys were swinging the bats well, and attacking their pitcher. Unfortunately, the balls weren’t falling for us. Kade (Scivicque) had the home run and then we had the rally for three more runs. It looked like we had an insurmountable lead. Every ball they hit found a hole. The breaks of baseball were against us tonight. Joe Broussard came in ad pitched his heart out. He competed with every ounce of energy he could. I thought we played great defense, and made some spectacular plays. I still can’t believe the ball that (Alex) Bregman hit didn’t go off the wall. They were playing their outfielders very deep, and they were just making catches. The balls weren’t dropping for us. We are going to regroup and get ready to play tomorrow. We have one game to play tomorrow. We are playing for a championship tomorrow. I know our guys will be ready to go. “

On the pitching…
“(Kyle) Bouman was phenomenal. He threw six shutout innings. We couldn’t ask for anything more from him. Our bullpen has been so fantastic. Kurt McCune pitched an outstanding seventh inning.  They kept finding holes in the eighth inning.  We had a strange play on the interference call. It certainly aided their inning. They did come through with some big innings though. They put the balls on the ground and found some holes.”

LSU Player Quotes


On his hitting performance tonight…
“The last hit came up short. That’s what mattered. I will say this. I know Tyler (Moore) and myself will leave every ounce of energy we have on that field tomorrow. We will do everything possible to win that game. We going out there and playing aggressive tomorrow. We will have fun and let it rip.”

On facing adversity throughout the season…
“We have been tested a lot this year, and our confidence has been tested a lot this year. We overcame it, and we are just going to leave everything out there tomorrow. That is all we can do. We will play with a lot of energy and enthusiasm. We are coming out to the field tomorrow like it’s the last day we will ever get to play the game of baseball.”


On tonight’s loss versus Houston…
“We hit a lot of balls right on the nose. They just didn’t find the holes tonight. That’s baseball. We know that, and we know that it comes with playing the game. We are going to come out tomorrow and leave it all out on the field. There is no time to hang our heads right now. We just have to put it behind us and move forward. We already looking forward to tomorrow and playing our hearts out.”

On moving forward from tonight’s loss…
“It is already flushed. We are looking forward to tomorrow. There is no time to hang our heads now. It is win or go home. We are excited to come out tomorrow and play.”
