#12 Cole Irvin, Pitcher, Oregon

On his mindset...

"My mindset was the same as it has been all season. I had a relaxed intensity, like Coach George Horton always talks about. I was relaxed and having fun which was important in a situation like that. I was able to be myself."

On the importance of pitching all nine innings...

"My bullpen catcher told me I needed to go the distance. I needed to do my job for the club. I knew I had to go the distance."

On the ninth inning...

"I was comfortable, it was a satisfying experience. Coming out of it on top was even better. I hope we can pull this next one out."

San Francisco Head Coach Nino Giarratano

On the game as a whole...

"I was surprised we only played nine innings. I kind of wanted to break the record for most innings in a regional. I really liked what I saw in this regional. I am really proud of my team. We just didn't get it done defensively."
