Starter Jake Odorizzi threw four scoreless innings of two-hit baseball before leaving with knee soreness. "It takes six months to get there and I'm proud of our guys obviously, you know, we've got a couple of games left, we'd like 102 plus 11 in October, so any chance you get to come out and play and just win the way we're winning, it's a nice feeling".
