    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Matt Harrison: There were a lot of pressure at-bats, with guys on base pretty much every inning. They were swinging the bats tonight, and I was just trying to minimize the damage as much as possible and keep the game close.

      • (on coming off the disabled list, where he was for the first time in his 10-year career)
        Dan Haren: Going to sleep last night and all this morning, I definitely had a lot of butterflies. It's been a while, and I just wanted to go out there and help the team. It was a big game for us, and maybe it'll give us some momentum.

      • (on facing Alexi Ogando and hitting a home run off him)
        Albert Pujols: I was just looking for a zone. I faced him yesterday and he threw me some tough pitches. So I just tried to be aggressive, like I always am, and look for a pitch to hit that was up. I was able to put my best swing of the night on it, and it gave us a little cushion.
        .
        Albert Pujols: I don't put any pressure on myself, and I don't care who's in front of me or behind me. I know what I can do. I've heard a lot of guys on TV saying that maybe I was trying too hard, and that (Mike) Trout and (Mark) Trumbo took the pressure off me. I mean, come on. I've been doing this for 12 years and I've played too many games at this level. So I'm just going to go out there and give my best - for the fans, for the team and for this organization.
        .
        Albert Pujols: Sometimes I try to do too much, like you guys saw early in the year. But I always try to relax, have fun and do what I can do. Obviously that didn't happen in April, but it's a long season. And hopefully at the end, we'll be raising the trophy.
