is ever going to figure it out.
BS: What does back-to-back come-from-behind wins (Monday and Tuesday) do for the teams state of mind?
JW: It does a lot. We go out there and we were battling and werent getting a whole lot going early, but our pitchers were keeping us in the game and giving us a chance to come up late and get some big hits.
BS: What did the walk-off home run do for your state of mind?
JW: Thats one of the most fun things youll ever do. Its fun to jump around with your teammates. Its fun to see them happy. Its more just coming through for your team.
BS: It seemed to carry over.
JW: Any time youre hitting the ball well youve got confidence. I got a couple of good pitches to hit (Wednesday), and I was able to hit them hard.
BS: How encouraging is it to see Liriano throw six strong shutout innings?
JW: Really encouraging. We know he is going to have to be a big part of our team for us to be as good as we can be. He had a great step forward.
BS: Were the past two games any more special because it was against your old team?
JW: No. Not at all. It doesnt matter who I play. Those guys are great over there. Ive got a lot of great friends over there and made a lot of great relationships that Ill probably have long after baseball is gone. It was just great to win. It doesnt matter who it is.
BS: What is the best reason to feel the season still can be salvaged?
JW: Weve got good players over here. We just havent been able to put it together yet. Our pitching struggled some, and when we pitched well we havent really hit. Once were able to put it together and be more consistent, thats when well be able to win more.
