Josh: That's what [Curt] Schilling was saying. That's what good pitchers do. They get through seven innings. I was lucky that I made some pitches when I needed to and got great defense.
Josh: I think I've always been prepared for this. I know what I have to do. You can't make rocket science out of it. You just have to execute pitches. Don't let exterior distractions in. It just takes away from what you're trying to do.
Josh: If I don't make it to the big leagues, nobody's going to remember I threw a no-hitter in Double-A.
Josh: It was fine. I threw 48 pitches and that was about it. The numbers could have been better, but we'll save all the good breaks for the season.
