Good to be able to get record 41st save in front of home crowd?
“Oh, definitely. When those two games in New York got cancelled, I started thinking it would be pretty cool to be able to get it at home.”
Record hit you yet?
“No, I’m just going out there each time trying to do my job, trying not to think about what I’ve done in the past or what’s ahead of me. I’m just thinking about outing by outing.”
On two strikeouts in perfect ninth for the save
“I would have been fine with three groundouts or three pop-outs. I guess it is pretty cool to do it on strikeouts.”
On relief of getting the record
“Now I don’t have to think about it, or how many more.”
“I have to thank my team for playing so well this season, because you can’t really have this many opportunities on a team that doesn’t win. Hopefully we keep on winning.”
On hitting and homer and taking a two-hit shutout to 7th inning
