CLEVELAND, OH - JUNE 15: Nick Swisher #33 of the Cleveland Indians scores the go ahead run off a double by Michael Brantley #23 during the fifth inning against the Washington Nationals at Progressive Field on June 15, 2013 in Cleveland, Ohio.
That shouldn't happen to us but it did and it cost us the game ... It was a little miscommunication. It was something we handled already.
I just don't feel like I have that thump in my swing, and that's a frustrating thought for me, because I like to let it rip every now and then ... We're just doing our treatments, man, trying to get better every day. We met with the doctors and this and that. We're just going to see what tomorrow brings. Whatever decision we make tomorrow, hey, we're just going to go at it full on.
It’s crazy ... A popup happens and a dude that doesn’t have many home runs comes up and goes oppo (opposite field) on us.More quotes »
