Your lineup has been good most of the year, but really struggled the past few games. You mentioned it being a matchup problem with Omaha, is it nothing more than that?

Yeah, that's just how things go sometimes. There are lulls in baseball. We know these guys can hit, just ran into some good pitching and had a couple rough days. I'm confident we'll bounce back.

You're in the middle of a scheduling oddity right now. It's a series at home, then the road, then home again. You haven't played consecutive series in the same place since early June and you won't until late July. Has that been rough on the team?

That's just how it is sometimes. Some years you will love the way it's scheduled and sometimes you catch some bad breaks. It's minor league baseball, we're all used to it and won't use it as an excuse.
