On Beachy having a nice outing
“Yeah, very nice. And a couple of other guys. McCann got three hits against a pretty tough left-hander. And Freddie Freeman. Nate made a helluva catch. Linebrink coming in to get a double-play ball. I think it was a pretty good performance team-wise, really.
“Beachy’s pitch count got a little high, if you’re going to nitpicking on certain stuff. But he was very good.”
20 strikeout in 12 innings since he returned from DL
“His fastball, he’s been able to command it. And he’s been able to throw a curveball, his breaking pitch, and then his changeup just keeps getting better and better.”
On Freeman’s impressive homer
“Especially for a young kid, and especially facing Bedard, a tough left-hander who’s been tough on left-handers. To hit a home run – him and Mac – but for Freddie to hit it to straightaway center in this ballpark, this is not a cheapie. You’ve got to hit it to get it out of here.”
