Postgame interview with Scioscia
Angels manager talks about the disappointment of losing ALDS
Aybar led your team in sacrifices; what were your options there?MIKE SCIOSCIA: Erick's a terrific bunter. He feels obviously badly he didn't get it down. It was a great count for it. Delcarmen throws hard which is a challenge, but I think it was a, you know, it was a buntable ball. Erick just didn't get it done, and that happens. The resulting play at third, were you aware that the ground can cause a fumble in baseball? MIKE SCIOSCIA: You know, he's got to have -- I feel he had to have control of the ball. It depends on what they consider control. You know, Tim felt, you know, Tim Welke felt that the tag was made and the out was recorded before he lost the ball. But it's like, you know, guy slides into the bag, you put a tag on him, and if the infielder drops the ball, there is a gray area there of interpretation of what happened. He felt he had control of the ball. You had thought through, the whole series was going to give us a preview of the Rays and the Red Sox?
