Manager Dusty Baker was quoted as saying, "It's important that runs are scored in the first inning of a game and it doesn't matter which team does the scoring. Hitters love to see runners crossing the plate early on and can't wait to swing the bat. This huge. We feel with Volquez dealing the way he has so far this season, that getting those crooked numbers up on the scoreboard will be no problem whatsoever. Bases will be unclogged big time."
