"I don't know, you live and learn but, with Harp up behind me in a two run game, I was being aggressive, I was convicted. I felt like I could make a difference right there and...I got caught up in it, that's for sure. ... I feel like it was my fault. Tough loss." (Jayson Werth, via MASNSports.com, 4/21/2013)
"Looking back, I was trying to do too much. I was trying to win the game

game. I feel like I pretty much blew it." (Jayson Werth, via Washington Post, 4/21/2013)
