Rice Head Coach Wayne Graham

On the game...

"I am grateful for the sunny day. These guys, Austin and Zach, pitched well. We struggled with the bats but this is a great place to play. I hope we get to play a lot longer."

On having similar experiences...

"It probably helps that we have played some longer games. We've had many others because our bats often struggle. Most of the time you have to get a big hit to win. Give Blake some credit for putting the ball in play."

#21 Austin Kubitza, Pitcher

On having extra-inning experience...

"Our job is to throw strikes and get outs. Our job is to put out zeros."

San Francisco Head Coach Nino Giarratano

On the game as a whole...

"I think we'll bounce back. We want to stay in this regional as long as possible. I think we can preform well, we are a tough club."

On facing a double-header...

"We'll be ready no matter what. We will try to erase this loss. Whoever we play we want to go out there and get it. We'll be ready to go whether we play 12, 14, or 18 innings."
