    • TRIVIA (2)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • (on nearly being hit in the head by an Orel Hershiser pitch in the fourth inning)
        Moises Alou: It scared me. It nearly got me. I have three kids I want to see grow up.
        Moises Alou: (Hitting coach) Jerry (Manuel) told me to go up and be a hitter, to swing the bat. He told me to stay back, not jump at the ball as I have been, to trust my hands. I made those adjustments.
        (on his three run sixth inning home run)
        Moises Alou: The home run had nothing to do with getting back at him (Hershiser) for nearly hitting me in the head. I wasn't thinking about that anymore. I had gotten my focus back.

      • (on handling his starter Livan Hernandez when he got upset for puzzling ball-strike calls in the early innings)
        Florida Manager Jim Leyland: I had every Spanish-speaking player we have talk to him, tell him not to lose his cool, settle down. They told him I thought we'd score some runs, just keep it right there.
