He said it
“We came out and put up a big inning in the first which is always nice. We didn’t roll over when we could’ve and kept fighting offensively. Tseng had a good start; he wasn’t as efficient as he has been but his changeup was really good and made pitches when he needed to. But his pitch count was high after five [innings] and couldn’t get through the sixth but the bullpen once again did a great job.” - Pelicans manager Mark Johnson
“[Brockmeyer’s grand slam] was huge. When you have a five-run lead in the middle of the game it could go either way and that pretty much sealed it right there.” - Johnson
