BU Head Coach Steve Smith

On the game tonight:

"It was a really competitive game. It wasn't a real pretty game, but it was competitive. A lot of good arms went out there and there were a lot of competitive at-bats."

On Max Garner:

"He got his pitch count up in three innings but we were able to squeeze two more out of him. There were just a few little things once he was out of the game that in the end won that game."

On the offensive production in the game:

"I thought we had some real competitive at-bats all the way up and down the order, but we didn't have a lot of hits to show for it. We were competing at the plate. I thought we played hard and I thought we competed. It is early in the year and we would like to be just a little bit better. We had three real big-time defensive plays and without those plays we aren't really in the game. We have them back two more times and we will see how it plays out."

Starting Pitcher Max Garner

On the game tonight:

"They are a good team; you have to give them credit. Their guy threw well and made pitches when he needed to. We gave them three runs and you just can't give good teams easy opportunities."

On his comfort on the mound after giving up an early run:

"I felt good. They are a good hitting team and they were fouling off a lot of pitches and really made me work for my outs. My pitch count was really high after the first three innings, but I just kept plugging away trying to get us through as many as I could. I wish I could have gone a little bit more but it is what it is."
