Daisuke Matsuzaka refused to blame the stomach ailment that he came down with in Texas for his less-than stellar start last night. When asked how he came down with the bug in Texas, Dice-K, replied through his translator Masa Hoshino, "I'm not really sure."
He was much more definitive when asked if the stomach affected his start. "I don't think it had any specific effect," he said. "I was able to prepare for this start as I usually do."
