Red Sox left fielder DARNELL McDONALD, leaping in vain for a double by Matt Angle that knocked in two runs in the third inning of a 6-5 Baltimore victory, Sept. 19, 2011 --
"I was just trying to catch the ball, man, and make the play and help my pitcher out. I thought I was going to catch it, actually. I just needed a couple inches more. It's a layup when I needed a dunk. It's hard to play the Wall. Look at all those things out there. The Monster is not very friendly. It doesn't give. There's no pad on that. It's like going across the middle against the Ravens. I'm a little sore today. The sun was the worst I've ever seen out there. Sunglasses didn't help. Try going out there with sunglasses someday and stare at the sun for 15 seconds. You can't see a thing."
