Tommy Hunter was asked about trying to fight back against the middle of Chicago’s lineup.
“I don’t think it was much of a fight if you don’t have a fastball,” he said. “I didn’t locate. It was all offspeed, offspeed, offspeed, offspeed, offspeed, and eventually if you keep throwing enough offspeed pitches in the zone, they’re going to hit it. And that’s what happened tonight.”
Hunter said he felt better about his start in Toronto despite the four home runs.
“Yeah, a (expletive) ton better,” he said. “I can’t say that, but yeah. Man, I’m giving you guys (expletive) answers. You can’t use any of this.”
...Is that where the home runs come from, being up in the zone?
“Yeah,” he replied. “Well, the one today was just a horse (crap) pitch in a horse (crap) spot. It was just horse (crap). I don’t know how else to say it. It was a ball right down the middle of the plate that any big league hitter would be able to do that. I’m not taking anything away from Pierzynski. He put a good swing on it. Good for him. Tip your cap. But it was horse (crap) on my part.”
