POSTGAME QUOTES: Cal State Fullerton 7, Gonzaga 4

May 30, 2009

FULLERTON, CA -

GONZAGA
Head Coach Mark Machtolf

About playing CSF...
"They're a good team. Today they got a couple of big hits and we didn't capitalize when we needed to. They are a good team and I give them all the credit."

About his team's play...
"It was more about the opportunities we had on offense. We left way too many runners on base."

On his plan to face CSF...
"We went in focused on getting their hitters out."

Pitcher Steven Ames

About Garneau's hit...
"I think his bat broke and I didn't know where it went either."

Designated Hitter Anthony Synegal

About facing Renken...
"He's definitely a bulldog, he got stronger as the game went on. You've got to tip your cap, he pitched his butt off."

CAL STATE FULLERTON
Cal State Fullerton Head Coach Dave Serrano...

"That was an excellent college baseball game."

"[Gonzaga] was a little underrated."

"Today was the proudest I've seen of this team. They still keep on growing up together.

On Dustin Garneau's Weird Double in the 6th...
"The centerfielder didn't think it was hit as hard."

"Daniel [Renken] is a fierce competitor. I really think he just went back to being Daniel Renken during the 6th, 7th & 8th innings, and that was the key to the game."

Catcher Dustin Garneau

On going 5 for 5...
"I don't think I have even gone 4-fo- 4. Offense is a bonus, as long as I just play solid defense."

On last night, barely having any offense...
"I felt a little left out of last night."

Pitcher Daniel Renken
"They were hunting fastballs and laying off changeups."

"The 6th, 7th, & 8th, I was pitching how I knew how to pitch."

"I felt fine, I'll throw 180 pitches to keep this team in the game."
