He said it
“Martinez didn’t have his best stuff but he competed well and threw strikes when he needed to. [Reliever Michael Heesch] did another outstanding job and [David Berg] did, too.” – Pelicans manager Mark Johnson on the team’s pitching Tuesday
“We had that four run sixth to gives us a little cushion and that always helps. We got some clutch hits and had three guys with multiple hits and Chesny keeps swinging a good bat. Also had a couple of big two-out RBIs; that’s timely hitting and we’re putting together some good at-bats.” – Johnson
