Yankees 12, Brewers 2: Ron Roenicke's Postgame Comments

As seen on FS Wisconsin:

On Marco Estrada's foot:

He's ok. It's a bruise, for right now he said he's fine.

On Zack Greinke's second inning:

I don't know. It's a real good hitting team, first inning I thought messed him up: He could've easily gotten out of that one with nothing. And I think just working hard that first inning, going into the second inning and not making his pitches...whether that first inning messed him up mentally I don't know. But he's a good pitcher, he's got to be able to get out of that. Even when things go bad for him, he's got to be able to get out of it.

On the ball Nyjer Morgan couldn't catch in the first:

Yeah, he just stopped because he knew the ball wasn't going to go as far as he thought, and when he turned the ball was off to the side of him so he tried to readjust and just put his foot down.

When asked if Greinke got rattled:

I don't know. It's tough to say. From Zack, I wouldn't think that's the case. Usually he continues on. He's had a couple of rough first innings and all of a sudden he settles down and  throws the ball pretty good. So unfortunately, I think the last home run, I didn't want to leave him out there longer but who knows, maybe if he doesn't give up that home run maybe he goes back out there and settles down and throws well.

When asked why he took Greinke out after two innings:

Because he'd already given up seven runs. Now if I let him go back out there and they get a couple more runs off of him and he's got nine runs? I don't want him to have nine runs. Or whatever the case may be.
