Head Coach Steve Smith
On the game:
"Both teams pitched the game pretty well. It was a well pitched game. I think that no player likes to play on a day like today so it was good to see both teams go out there and play as well as they did."
On Josh Turley and Brooks Pinckard:
"(Josh Turley) has been pretty good. He is coming in and throwing strikes for one thing. I thought today would be a good day for him because he is more of a fly ball type guy. The key is that he is throwing strikes. We made some plays behind him. (Josh Turley) is not striking a bunch of guys out and neither is Brooks (Pinckard). Not a great day for him and not a perfect setup situation for him to go in there because he is not going to get a lot fly balls and today he couldn't punch a guy out. He kept throwing strikes and didn't put anybody on base."
On Shawn Tolleson's performance:
"I thought he threw real well. That is very encouraging to see, particularly this early in the year. That is the key to the whole thing really, how your starting pitching is. Obviously both clubs got good starting pitching today."
On Gregg Glime's sacrifice fly:
"He didn't try to do too much with it. He got a ball away from him so he got the barrel on it pretty good. To me he took a pretty veteran at-bat as I thought Raynor (Campbell) did during the ballgame. I thought he had some pretty good at-bats. That is what you really need from those seniors."
Senior C Gregg Glime
On the game and the sacrifice fly:
"It was good how we came out and battled through the cold. (On the sacrifice fly) I hit it well. I was trying to swing because I wasn't seeing the ball real well today so I was just trying to be as loose as possible to the ball."
On the importance of grabbing a win to start the weekend:
"It is big. Every Friday night and every week is big and Saturday is even bigger after you get a win. I am really happy with the team. I think every time we come out I am more impressed with the team. I am excited to see how we match up against (Texas A&M and Western Kentucky)."

On the success of the bullpen:
"I think the key to our success is just going out there and doing our job by throwing strikes and getting people out. We don't necessarily have to strike everyone out; we are just trying to get outs out there. Coach Smith working with us is definitely a bonus."
