Bruce Bochy gives credit to Game 5 pitcher Barry Zito after his club celebrates the National League pennant.
That obviously over the last three tremendous were there any adjustments you made toward the Cardinals or just guys that. Well I had a good start was Toledo. They gave me through Saint Louis and they kind of fed off each other problems on followed him and Kane. -- Just really located below me what degree it ballclub over there you make your pitches enough these guys Disco track at the right time. It's all about pitching start and you know and a and again. I think he coaches release -- its absence it's accomplished throughout the staff that -- you know we can do it is to. -- followed each other courses the bats woke up. You know we're. Where were -- number beyond its. You know with our backs -- long long music and and to do this this is a special group. Never say die attitude that you wanna go home and a found a way to get it done. Into the right. Side -- 2010 was such a wonderful experience for you but. Right now this has to feel for you probably is as good inning the way this club has battled right I mean. Every area. Years if -- if unique in its own way in 2010 was. You know with the misses as we call them. You know what what we had to go through here. With adversity throughout the year and of course. You know get two games since netting a goal and a 312 this great club and find ways to get it done you just mixes so much special week. It's you know we we written off many times and a with these guys again were relentless and get it done on the way. That is is on restorers. Freddy Sanchez were no disrespect to them because they played magnificently. Point in the world McDonald's grow even better. Well. You know -- There are you know you'd hate to really compare because you know all those players did like to contribute to. It's good to the World Series. But a World Series. Gone cheered. Which we put him in the leadoff role we took off and he just an incredible year force him go to school this week. Acquired -- world's great joke currency and a game make a blockbuster deals recently since his nickname. -- he's a good player with the humidity and he India really appreciate his talent discard as. And I don't know if it was possible for him -- game so well explain. His level. But he did after that slide he he reaches that their. Get to the World Series he lives there. And. Bruce have you ever seen anything like a hundred bounces broken bat single that occurred in the third. -- -- -- Yeah. He's. Unique in this style of hitting him the ball kind of slide Easton. I don't know shortstop that would have made them play you you -- about it slice no way. You know we'll take it though in this -- breaks help you win games like this. As good for a 102 -- He's done so much to helped -- he's Garza what is Luke talks to realize that though that -- the ball three times. I got word of you know yeah kind of rolled off him. Again you take it. You only Garner -- maybe Pablo can do good to. With you know I think Carter has that ability pitiful. And to and you talk about how important. -- defense was the way you'd. Caught the ball you know critical yet. Our defense. Critical role in our success trying to come back. You know a bitches or street view we have to get the ball. You know. We did such a great. Crawford tremendous shorts Kudrow really everybody but they'll feel the -- -- -- grounds out there. Of course busters won so put the figures out there and help. It is -- -- starters back on track. Accuse -- to where we are. Again I couldn't be prouder of these guys have probably kept their focus and their determination to go home. Into the left Bruce you've got a quick turnaround now what you know what Detroit. Well. Saw a lot to learn a lot about -- soon. You know so it's. Only focus on this club here and now we have to. Turn this page because we're playing game here a couple days ago. On command more or early due to work in. I know what a great club this year where we know. All about there were -- opening day in their whole staff. You know that he swept the Yankees took a group there -- you know it's. -- rotational. I know all of -- together at the minute. With they redid the siege rule would talk about. We're gonna work -- as a rotation. Right market. -- question. -- that meant maybe didn't have his best stuff early in the game and he was throwing a lot of pitches were you concerned that might be struck out there. -- almost a concern but I agree with -- he was not on top of his game -- It was -- on the side and ball. Definitely some pitches up in which it spots as well as he normally goes with. I think he says a lot about again there's Mika -- How he competes and he found a way to get it done and get out of some jams made pitches when he had to it wasn't his best stuff. Yet. You get the way and then. Shut them down and it's it's which you have to do in Europe there -- doctor -- you have to just he did. Bruce I know you're going to be asked this question -- probably been asked that but again I -- basket. Six elimination games in the crowd of guys stink that how it. Little. But still known. You know how many times we face. It was you know this team. These guys deserve all the credit they were determined not to go home -- that never say die attitude and a you know -- did a great -- keep them pumped up. You know they were playing for each other and of course our fans. You know they they just did not wanna go home and they they were determined in showed their play. Bruce is franchises great history 1962. McCovey hits a line drive to second base in three years oh year was all of it was only this. -- -- other way the year that much farther away and they're postulate in the broadcast Booth tonight when pants and triple if that ball. You know maybe that was sort of like the baseball gods. Yeah oh well baseball gods helped us with Paula. You know -- You know it is and where they couldn't get a double play you. Three runs scored a great counselor by Posey and again you you take those CO you you give breaks in this game and you hope to take advantage element. You know. Put the ball plates sometimes good things happen that's what happened forces.
