Another club can be beating you for six innings but for some reason the good ball clubs get tough and win them in the last three.
— Billy Martin

Life's like a ball game. You gotta take a swing at whatever comes along before you wake up and find out it's the ninth inning.
Martin Goldsmith inning quote

It's never over. You don't want to be in the position to be down four runs in the ninth inning, but it's not over until the last out.
— Derek Jeter

When they come here, what we are looking for them to do is step up to the plate, take responsibility and get the big innings, the centuries - or take a lead with the ball.

I think I rushed and I needed more time with my comeback. I needed more time to get my legs stronger to be able to handle the workload. You can only train for that by pitching innings. You can't simulate pitching off a mound in a game inside a weight room.
