Here are some notable quotes from the series:
Friday (Win, 7-3)
+ “In the years before, we’ve always had big slides, which takes the wind out of your sails. Since the All-Star Break, it hasn’t happened. It makes you feel like the ball is always rolling in your direction. If you lose one, you feel like you have a chance to come in the next day and win a series.” -Bronson Arroyo on the team's 27-9 record since July 6th
+ "We're relaxed. We know our pitching staff is going to be there. We know we've got the hitters. Guys step up every single day. Everybody knows their role. When you know your role, everything's going to be fine." -Todd Frazier on the come-from-behind win
