SnakeBytes 6/13: Failing in Extras

I don't know what to do with my hands. - Bob Levey

MIguel Montero gave the D-backs new life, but Chris Carter had other plans as he hit his 3rd homer to give the Astros the victory and the series win. The D-backs fly back to the West Coast to face the Dodgers.

Quotables

You've got to keep the ball in the ballpark. We didn't do a very good job of that tonight. Three home runs sunk us.

You suck it up. You want to -- and you expect to -- win that game. Carter got the home run on us, and they had the last at-bat.

- Kirk Gibson

He put a pretty good swing on it. You just have to tip your hat to him. There's nothing else to say.

- J.J. Putz

I saw it off the bat, paused for a second, thought it was going to fall in there. I didn't think there was any chance he was going to catch it, but he did. He made an unbelievable play.

- Paul Goldschmidt
