Quote to note

"We're going to keep fighting. We're going to make the game close. We're not going to give up. That's one of the strengths of this team. As the game goes longer, we put together good at-bats, we get guys on. We may not always win it, but we make it close and give ourselves a chance."
--Bauer on the Indians and their playoff hopes moving forward.
