SOSA: I don't feel nervous or anxious because I had a normal game like any other. I just have a lot of pressure on myself. It's my first time. I just ask God tomorrow to pitch a game like I've always done.
You're 9-0 on the road this year. Why this success?
SOSA: I was concentrating on the road - pitching good. At home I was trying to do the same as pitching on the road. I was trying to pitch on the road the way my pitching coach was telling me. Trying to pitch the way I had to.
Is there any advantage to the Astros not knowing you, not knowing your tendencies?
SOSA: It's not so much that they have an advantage. Maybe we have an advantage or I have an advantage because they haven't seen me pitch. That doesn't signify that they'll win because I am going to lose. Tomorrow I am going to pitch and do what I have to do.
How big is this start for you tomorrow, in your hometown? How many friends and family will be watching, and what is the excitement you are hearing from back home?
SOSA: I have a lot of family that's going to watch. I know that they're going to be watching me play tomorrow.
I'm just going to play tomorrow the best that I can. I have a lot of pressure on myself, but I'm going to do the best I can and I'm going to dedicate the game tomorrow to my family and my daughters.
And what are your daughter's names and ages?
SOSA: Zanica and Brittany, six and five.
