A postgame interview with Daisuke Matsuzaka
Red Sox Game 5 starter talks about the comeback win
Where were you at the moment of the walk off, and what are your overall thoughts about your dramatic victory tonight?DAISUKE MATSUZAKA: I was in the clubhouse, the reason being I was there throughout the seventh and eighth when we were getting those runs and I could see the momentum shifting towards us, and I was half expecting the result you saw. And I couldn't move from the one spot I was in. But the instant J.D. got the hit, I ran out to the bench. I'm not usually the pitcher that leaves the game as the pitcher of record and doesn't have to face the loss. But this year I've had a lot of those instances, and we're a team that scores a lot of runs after the seventh, so I just kept my faith and watched the whole game.
