Quotes

"I felt a lot better. Obviously, the results weren't there. But as far as everything else, I felt a lot better. It's just really frustrating. You give up five runs in five innings and you feel like you had better control of the game. I felt like it was one of my better games."

- Trevor Cahill

"I just want to pitch my next two starts and give us a chance to win," he said. "If I get there, I get there. If not, oh well."

- Wade Miley on reaching 200 inning mark

More or less, the ball went where he wanted it to go. And yet he was still hit hard, giving up five runs in five innings in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field.

Most starting pitchers take pride in eclipsing the 200-inning mark, seeing it as an indication they were able to at least give their team durability. Miley made it sound like he doesn't care one way or another.
