Walters, who has a 47 K / 11 BB ratio in 44.1 innings (8 games):

“By far this was the best outing I’ve had in my pro career,” said Walters.

“It almost felt like it was easy today, I just felt good. I was locating pitches when I needed to, definitely got in that rhythm and felt better than I had in any other starts.”

“Last time I went six and felt confident out there,” said Walters. “I was building off that, seeing what I can do with myself and trust myself.”

“I used my changeup a lot,” he said. “I was able to establish the fastball inside and locate that pretty well on both corners and go from there, so I could throw the changeup and get groundouts, swings-and-misses.”

“It definitely was nice [to pitch that deep into a game],” he said. “It was one of those nights you wish you could go all nine, but it felt good to go seven and help the team to a victory. The defense was good and the offense was there tonight. I was feeling good.”
