Smith on how much fun he has on the plate when everyone in the lineup is getting hits:
“Yeah, it’s fun, it’s definitely a fun lineup to be part of. I mean, 1 through 9, guys are hitting, and you don’t have to worry about pitching around because there’s that next guy behind, whoever, that’s got your back.”
The rookie catcher on his rookie record:
“It’s pretty cool. I mean, especially there has been a lot of great players that have come through the organization, I guess to have my name up there is special.”
Smith on how weird tonight’s game was all the way around:
“It was a weird game, the last inning and a half was kind of weird, with the umpire getting hurt, and then Adam playing first, and Russ pitching, it was interesting.
I mean, Russ can do it all, and then Adam, he caught that last ball, that’s cool.”
On Dustin May’s performance:
“He pitched really well tonight, his fastball’s really good, his curveball was really good through that last inning, started losing a little command, but his cutter is pretty good, and he just went at these hitters, they were pretty aggressive, and was putting guys away at the curve and the cutter, like I said, and yeah, he pitched well.”
On a record setting night for Los Angeles, the rookies set the tone while the veterans filled in the gaps. The Dodgers’ 80th win of the season was an exceptionally fun one.
