‘”You’d like to win all four games on one night but the schedule isn’t set up that way,” said Ruff. “It’s dealing with adversity, dealing with emotions of a loss. It’s being able to put the win away as fast as you put the loss away. I think we were able to prove that to ourselves over the last couple months under extreme pressure … because we knew we couldn’t afford to go on any two-game, three-game little slide. Or I wouldn’t be standing here and (the players) wouldn’t be in the dressing room and (the media) would be doing baseball stories right now.”‘
