News and notes from Eastwood Field:
"It felt good to get it out of the way," Roberts said. "It calmed my nerves a little bit."
"It was great," said Roberts of being able to meet Perez. "He's a good guy. He just bought us dinner. It was easy talking to him, playing behind him."
"They've been playing well," Kubiak said. "Defense has been good, pitching has been great. We just needed to get some hits, and we got some tonight. They've battled every night."
