"I didn't think he was all that sharp," Astros manager Cecil Cooper said. "It
looked like he had some life to his fastball. It looked like we had some pitches
to hit, but we just didn't swing it very well. You have to give him some credit,
but I didn't think he was like a one-hit performance tonight.
So what gives? Did Cecil Cooper watch a different game than I did? Or was this some sort of motivational tactic by the Astros manager?
