JOHN FRANCO: It’s a big deal for us to come off this loss and see how we respond. We know they can come in here and beat us. Can we come back after a loss? The seniors and juniors have never done it.
JACK TOBIAS: Obviously, they’re the best in Double-A. They’re very balanced. They get off the ball well, and they intend on punching you in the mouth. They don’t make mistakes and they’re good at what they do.
