COMMENTS FROM Mark Marquess

(On the team's victory over Cal State Fullerton inWednesday's first Bracket Final)


'What can you say. It was a great college baseball game.For us, it was the pitching of John Hudgins and the two home runs by CarlosQuentin. John threw a complete game versus one of the best teams in collegebaseball on four days rest. He was masterful. Carlos' home run in the eighthinning was huge. It was a great atmosphere and great game by both teams.'


(On the team's victory over South Carolina in Tuesday'selimination game)


'It was a very important game for us and a greatpitching performance by Ryan McCally. We really swung the bats well and hit theball hard. We backed up pitching with hitting. We only got one walk, so we hadto earn the runs. I was very pleased with the offense, but the key to the gamewas McCally's pitching performance.'

'I thought that we faced good pitching throughout theregional. We had some timely hitting and took advantage of their pitchersgetting the ball up. I have never had a team that has swung the bats this wellin the Regional. Coming in to the Regional we were playing our best baseball andswinging the bats well, so we hope to continue with that. This is probably thebest that we have swung the bat in a regional for a while.'
