Quote to note

"It's my favorite thing to do defensively. It's fun to make a good catch, but if you really break it down, you're probably 150, 180 feet away and you're trying to throw the ball in a certain area and get it to them on one hop. That was fun because it was Adrian Beltre and I did play with him, so I could talk a little trash to him after that."
-- Right fielder David Murphy, on throwing Beltre out at home plate on Friday night
