Head coach David Pierce opening statement...

I just thought we did not play very clean. It really affected us. We gave up a double and then we had too many wild pitches and passed balls. Then the play in right field cost us two more runs. If we lose those two right there we have a chance to tie it up, but it just didn't turn out that way.

Pierce on the play in right field...

It is really hard to tell. It was a tough call to make. They said that he never had control of the ball. I thought for sure he had control of the ball.

Pierce on facing Justin Dunn...

There are a lot of good Friday night guys, and he's no exception. The thing is, he's so clean in his delivery it's easy. He's sitting on 94-95 (MPH). When he needed the breaking ball, it was good. When we got something going and got the two runs, he got behind. He's just a quality arm.

Emerson Gibbs on his day on the mound...

I felt good. I got ahead of Boston College, but they made me throw over the belt. Overall, I felt alright, but it's baseball. Sometimes it turns out the other way. But overall I thought I did alright.

Hunter Williams on Justin Dunn...

He had his pitches going. He was throwing good offspeed and had a great fastball too. He was just able to keep us off balance at the plate. We swung at pitches we shouldn't have. We didn't square up on as many balls as we needed to and didn't really find a way to get on base.

Williams on Tulane's hitting...

Everybody is different. Every pitch is different. When you're facing a quality arm like that it's tough. He has a really good fastball and a really good breaking ball. We've seen guys like that before. You just have to stay with a good approach and stay short, but we just couldn't get base hits when we needed to. We just need to take it one pitch at a time from here. We need to slow it down and take it one pitch at a time and we'll be alright.
