GAME 5: Cal State Fullerton vs. New Mexico
June 6, 2010
FULLERTON, CA -
CAL STATE FULLERTON HEAD COACH Dave Serrano
"We live on. We are proud of our guys. Dan wasn't on his `A' game, but he ate it up. We welcome Ray Hernandez. He wasn't able to help during the season, unfortunately, but now he can."
"We give credit to the pitchers we face. We need to keep doing what we do offensively and defensively."
"Minnesota is a well coached team, and a good team. They are one of the best fourth seeds in the country."
NEW MEXICO HEAD COACH RAY BIRMINGHAM
"We got our butts kicked. They played well, we didn't pitch well. [Fullerton] swung the bats well... We're proud of our team."
On 1b Jacob Nelson: "This guy is indicative of the freshmen entering the program."
"This kid is the next Justin Howard, and he's going to play in the big leagues."
"We drew scenarios and what ifs, and it happened yesterday."
On Fullerton: "I want to build something like Fullerton in New Mexico. They're going to Omaha more than I go to the grocery store."
NEW MEXICO FIRST BASEMAN JACOB NELSON
"I feel bad for all the seniors, it sucks to see them all go."
