"There hasn't been one phase of the game where we've been good," said Minasian, whose team finds itself 1½ games out of a playoff spot despite an expanded field. "We've struggled on the mound, we've struggled at the plate, we've struggled defensively, we've struggled baserunning. The one thing I will say is the effort's been great. I believe in this group. I know we've gone through a tough stretch, but we have 106 games left. And I'm excited about the 106 games."
