Osich: “Momentum Will Take Us Into Next Year” Tomlinson: “Pitch Selection” Is Key To Pinch Hitting

Welcome to the INSIDE CHINA BASIN Baseball Podcast

Updated 3 times a  week on TheSportsVirus.com!

Giants LHP Josh Osich and INF/OF Kelby Tomlinson joined us Wednesday from AT&T Park to talk about their progress this season.

Osich talked to The Sports Virus about how the Giants are dealing with a losing season : “…It’s hard for a lot of these guys because they’re used to winning every single time, so it’s definitely a learning experience for all of us and no one likes to lose, but sometimes it’s good for us”…On recent series wins vs the Diamondbacks and Cubs: “When you’re taking down some of the better teams in the league and we start playing better ball that momentum will take us into next year.”

Tomlinson talked to The Sports Virus about the life of a pinch hitter: “You’re either 0 for 4 or 4 for 4 every day. Being able to keep that in check emotionally is big so when you get into that next game, your next chance you can’t be thinking about the last game and how you struck out…If you can swing at the right pitches and not swing at the wrong pitches then you’re setting yourself up for success. It’s even more important when you get that one at bat to be very disciplined…When you get that one chance you gotta real focus in on your pitch selection.”
