Fernando Gonzalez, C

On the game…

“It’s hard to defend walks and barrels. Things didn’t go our way. He (LSU winning pitcher Gage Jump, 7 IP, 4H, 1R, 1BB, 7K) filled up the zone, and as coach said, we missed too many fastballs. He did a good job of not walking guys. We didn’t execute our plan.”


Ike Cousins Head Coach Wes Johnson

On the team’s performance today…

“There are times in this game when you get beat and times when you let the other team win, and you look at the way we played, and I think that’s what happened today. We gave up 11 singles, and we walked too many guys. We missed too many fastballs in the strike zone. We did some things that were very uncharacteristic for us. Our pitching walked too many guys and there’s no manual for overcoming a starter going one-third of an inning.”
