“I mean, back in May, we kind of knew that was going to be the case. Again, it’s the nature of the game, and we’re a team. I think think the guys that have stuck around in the bullpen through the course of the year only go better. You look at what Tanner Rainey, having Rodney here now, those guys have given us big inning, especially down the stretch.

My job is to go out and go as long as I can and keep it close. Guys scored some runs tonight, and we came out on top.” -Stephen Strasburg
