Mike Scioscia and Joe Saunders interviews
Manager and starting pitcher focus on winning Game 3 in Boston
Realize you haven't worked out yet, but how does Torii feel? How is his knee?MIKE SCIOSCIA: Torii's good to go. He's fine. We're going to hold him out of batting practice today and just let him go out there, loosen up and throw a little bit. But he's done a little walk through. He feels like he can hit and play. He'll be fine. The Angels obviously need a big game from you and are counting on a big game from you. How do you feel about that? JOE SAUNDERS: Welcome the opportunity. Just itching to get out there and put up some zeros and give us a chance. It's what we've been trying to do all year. Looking forward to doing it here hopefully. Joe, when you pitched here in July, everything went pretty well, not too long ago. What does that do for your confidence and your comfort level tomorrow night? JOE SAUNDERS: I mean, it's nice to be able to dwell on, but obviously, this is going to be my first postseason experience. Everybody's told me the postseason is a different ballgame, so, you know, just looking forward to getting out there and playing.
