    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Minnesota Right Fielder Tom Brunansky: I give the Cardinals credit for pitching their game here, but they can't pitch the same way in the 'Dome. They pitched us away here. They said 'If you're going to beat us, you're going to have to hit to the opposite field.' and we didn't do that.
        It's a whole different situation in the 'Dome. They have to pitch to our strength. They can't pitch away as they did here all the time because the right field fence is too short. If they throw it out there and we get even a part of the bat on the ball, it's off the tarp or over it. Here (where it's 383 feet as compared to 360 feet in the Metrodome), if you get a piece of the pitch that's away, all you've done is filed out. Like I said, they have to change their style now and we handled it pretty well in the first two games.

      • (on his 4-of-20, no home run, one RBI performance in the Series)
        Minnesota Center Fielder Kirby Puckett: I'm having fun, I'm doing the best I can. They pitched me tough the whole Series, and you've got to give them credit. I mean, I feel OK at the plate, it's just not happening for me. I'm not going to panic, press or change anything. All I can do is go out and play good defense and hope that I step up to the plate one time and break out of it. I'm swinging the way I usually do, so I'm sure it will happen for me. The only thing is that now I can be can certain of having only more day to find it. We've got to win Saturday, it's that simple.

      • Minnesota Manager Tom Kelly: We outpitched and outplayed them. We had that one bad inning (the three-run sixth).
