“If I’m still ahead in the count, it’s fine. I hit with two strikes. But when you have a to chase a 2-1 fastball two inches off? It’s not fun, especially when you could be 3-1 and be ahead in the count even more. With me, it’s either I’m trying to swing at every single pitch or I’m not. When he’s calling something that you don’t think is a strike you’ve got to battle with it, do the best you can. That’s his zone. You’ve got to deal with that that night.”
