I don't even know. I'm just being the same guy, having fun. I guess I've got a little more confidence at home plate.

I was thinking [early on] that we could win the game [with] just me doing good. Now I realize that we're nine guys, it's not like I have to do everything. So I just realized that we've got to win as a team and it's not about me.
