"Pitching is the key to our success. We're not going to be able to score five, six runs as much as I'd like to say we can do that. There are going to be nights when we don't score and we have to pitch. We need those guys to step up and fill those spots in the rotation and give us a chance to win ballgames. That's where we're at.
