Quick Quotes


"I think I've had a lot of games where I've given up two home runs," Delgado said. "Every coach says that I have to learn about why that happened and that it shouldn't happen. I'm trying to learn every time for next year."

Randall Delgado on giving up two more home runs


"The last time we faced him he was using too much secondary stuff and he was falling behind in the count," D-backs catcher Miguel Montero said. "Today he was aggressive with his fastball, his command was pretty good so when his command is good and he's aggressive with the fastball his secondary pitches are better. Today was one of those days where he was like the old Kennedy."

However, the good news is that the damage was, relatively speaking, minor in comparison to what it at first appeared. The young all-star hopes to rehab the knee and be good to go for next season.
