Defensive gem of the day

"If it didn't happen for us there in the sixth inning, it was going to be tough. You start thinking it's just one of those days. And then you hit a ball hard every once in a while and it's right at somebody and you go 'Aw, man.' " — Jim Macaluso, King coach, whose team was held hitless by Brooks-DeBartolo until the sixth.
