Brewers 5, Twins 3: Ron Roenicke's Postgame Comments

As seen on FS Wisconsin

Didn't hear the first question:

Yes, we did. We got great pitching today, and timely hitting.

On John Axford finishing the game, though it turns into a conversation about Yovani Gallardo:

Ax was good, throwing the ball for strikes. Kameron Loe, outstanding before him. Manny Parra, good. And really, Yo, I thought that was one of his best games this year. His stuff was fantastic. Third baseman's locked in. The fastball was a good pitch to him but then he hit a changeup out after having a real good at bat, he's locked in. But Yo threw the ball, really that's as good as I think he's thrown this year.

How the Twins didn't have a chance the first four or five innings.

No. The location was great, the life was great, the offspeed pitches were great. He was really good today.

On the surprise of Martin Maldonado:

I don't know. I don't know. How do you figure? You just don't know, when a guy comes to the big leagues, you don't know what's going to happen. He had a very good year offensively last year in Triple-A, which was the first full season of playing every day, and he's fabulous defensively, but he's got some huge hits in some key moments for us.

Didn't hear this question, but it's more talk on Maldonado:

No, no, he's very confident, and he's fun. The comments he makes during the game, he's relaxed and he can think and actually make comments that mean a lot to what's going on in the game.

On how badly this win was needed:

The last two days can hurt a team and it can hurt the guy that's out there closing, so all of that was very important today.

On Ryan Braun's home run:

Brauny went down and got a good pitch. He's got some kind of power in him, a line drive out to center, and then Maldy, I'm sure he didn't want to walk him and got to a count where Maldy thought he had to come at him and he did it again.
