FULLERTON, CA -
MINNESOTA HEAD COACH JOHN ANDERSON
"I thought our starting pitcher had trouble getting out in the count."
"Fullerton did a good job executing in a short game and putting pressure on the defense and forcing pressure."
"Fullerton played outstanding. O' Connell was outstanding. He did a great job."
"Fullerton deserved to win tonight, they were the better team."
"The first three innings are a big part of the game and we need to get that momentum."
MINNESOTA OUTFIELDER MICHAEL KVASNICKA
"I think we weren't playing our game in the beginning. It would go to fast, we need to slow it down. We can play them obviously. We need to stick to the findamentals and slow them down."
CAL STATE FULLERTON HEAD COACH Dave Serrano
"Today was a great day to play two. Our team responded with backs against the well. We played phenomenal defense."
"We have a philosophy; the bigger the game, the more aggressive we get."
"After the Stanford game, we were pretty confident we wouldn't see the quality of stuff from the first two starters we faced."
On Starting Pitcher Colin O'Connell: "He pitched the best game of his career. He made it look really simple, and he had great defense and run support."
On Corey Jones moving from 7 to 3 in the lineup: "We needed to get Corey in a run-production lineup"
On possible starting pitcher Dylan Floro for the Monday game and game in general: "He has a resilient arm. We have a rested bullpen. We'll piecemeal our pitching together."
