Steve Bedrosian(2-13) was hit with the loss. He served up 4 homeruns in his 4 and 1/3 innings. Gooden, when asked about his 10 strikeout performance noted, 'The important thing is that we won, if I get 20 and we lose, what good does it do our team? But, on the other hand, since we won it feels great!'
