Arizona Diamondbacks manager Tori Lovello looked back on the previous day’s game.
Lovello looked back on the previous day’s game in an interview ahead of Game 2 of the World Series against the Texas Rangers held at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, USA on the 29th (Korean time).
The previous day, Arizona led 5-3 until the 9th inning, but allowed a tying home run to Corey Seager in the bottom of the 9th and a solo home run to Adolis Garcia in the bottom of the 11th inning to lose 5-6.
He said, “I have been in many stadiums so far. I have even been to a football stadium with 100,000 spectators cheering. “But yesterday’s tying home run moment was the loudest crowd cheer I’ve ever heard,” he said, recalling the atmosphere at the time.
He continued, “This stage is a place I’ve dreamed of since I was a child. I feel honored to be on this stage and feel special to be able to share this moment with our players. “I will never forget it,” he said, expressing his feelings about playing in the World Series.
“As I said here today and yesterday, every decision I made and every conversation I had was done with a clear head,” he said, also talking about the decisions he made during the game.
Regarding the matchup between closer Paul Seawald and Seager, “The opponent’s record will be 0-hit in 7 at-bats, or 0-hit in 8 at-bats. I remember it favoring the pitcher. It was also true that SeaWorld was previously located in Seattle (a team in the same district as Texas), so it was familiar. Yesterday, Seager swung as if he knew the ball was going to be there. He was aware of the appearance and movement of the pitch as it flew. So he needed to do a little better,” he said.
When asked what kind of competition he played against SeaWorld, where he recorded his first blown save in the postseason, he said, “I told you not to worry because you are still a good pitcher and we are still a good team.”
After allowing a walk-off home run, he also gave encouragement to Miguel Castro, saying, “We will win tomorrow.”짱구카지노 도메인
When asked if he regretted not avoiding the game with Garci in the bottom of the 11th inning, he said, “You always have to think of the worst. “In that situation, the worst thing for me was to give up a hit or a walk rather than a home run,” he said, shaking his head.
He said, “As I kept saying, I had a very clear head and had good conversations with the staff around me and made the decision. “No one on the staff said we should avoid competing with him,” he said emphatically, saying he did not regret the decision.
