#4 GW vs. #1 Wake Forest
NCAA Baseball Sub-Regional
Friday, May 31, 2002
GW Head coach Tom Walter:
"You've got to tip your hat to Wake Forest. Kyle Sleeth came out and, after giving up three runs in the second inning, really settled down and didn't give up much after that. He's an all-American for a reason and he proved why tonight. He struck out 11 of us and walked none and then Bush was as advertised, he came in and the game was over. That's what we heard about him and he came in and showed us why."
[On the bottom of the fourth inning]
"I felt like, in the nine-run inning, if we had made some plays, it probably would have been a different ballgame. But against a good-hitting ballclub like Wake Forest, you just can't afford to give away six outs and it kind of snowballed on us and we couldn't get out of that inning."
GW senior rightfielder Mike Bassett:
"We don't play as well from behind as we probably should. It definitely took our momentum away...we were flying high after the first three innings and the momentum really shifted on us."
Wake Forest Third Baseman Jamie D'Antona:
[on the grand slam]
"He pitched me the same thing, fastballs in and up and tried a slider away and after I fouled that one back, on a 2-0 swing, I was a little behind it and he threw another fastball and I was looking fastball again.
I'm always thinking home run. In that situation I was just trying to put the ball in play because we had the based loaded and nobody out."
Wake Forest Head Coach George Greer:
[On relief pitcher David Bush]
"David hadn't pitched since North Carolina and David had to pitch today.
