But we have a tough team. We’re going to bounce back. Especially

There was just a little bit of talk about what was going on
with Kenny Rogers, just wondering what was going on. Obviously from the first

any discussion after the second inning. He did his job. He did what he had to
do to keep us off balance. You’ve got to tip your hat to him. He did his job.
