#1: "They're hot," Gomes said. "We've been hot. They gave us their best bullet and beat us by one run. It wasn't our best bullet. You saw that, but we're still hanging in there." - Gomes #2: In short, [KC] played well. "They have to to beat us." Gomes said. "They catch the ball. The pen. They got speed, power, left-handers who can hit lefties. They're good, but they went a month where they won eight games the whole month [8-20 in May]. We didn't. Look where they are. As hot as they've been all year -- as hot as they've been in years -- they're 7½ games back." Up yours, Mr. Gomes.
