Ryan Tepera took down the Astros in his two innings of work in the White Sox win in Game 3. After the game, he might have made an even bigger impression when he spoke to the media.
Here is what Tepera said about the Astros after the ALDS Game 3:
"It’s a different game here at our field," Tepera said after the White Sox won their first game of the series after losing two in Houston. "You play at Minute Maid, they’re doing something over there that’s a little different. It showed you how many swings and misses they had tonight compared to at Minute Maid. That’s why you have homefield advantage."
"They’ve obviously had a reputation of doing some sketchy stuff over there," the White Sox reliever said. "We can say that it’s a little bit of a difference. I think you saw the swings and misses tonight compared to the first two games at Minute Maid, but that’s not really the story. We come here to play. We’re going to compete. We’re not even going to worry about what they’re going to do. All we have to do is execute pitches and they can’t hit them anyway.”
