What they're saying
“I think it’s my most memorable game as a professional up to this point. Hopefully I’ll top it at one point, but it’s going to be tough. I think I had three balls get through holes in the infield and hit two balls hard, so there was a little bit of luck. I had two strikes on me a couple of times, so I was really trying to put the ball in play. Five hits: it was a fun night.” – Young
