(AP) -- Comments following Game 2 of the 2013 World Series.

John Farrell, Red Sox Manager
"Well just in terms of the series, we fully expected this to be a hard-fought series. Not surprising that we're in this position we are."

Carlos Beltran, Cardinals Outfielder
(reporter question: "Carlos, if this had been a regular season game, would you have sat out?"

(Beltran) "Why do you guys always ask those questions? Why you guys come up with those questions? Well, you know what? I would say that as a player, I always gonna come to the ballpark, prepare myself to come play a game."

Mike Matheny, Cardinals Manager
"Very encouraged. Very, obviously we were all sitting around waiting to see how things would turn out today. We didn't know how he was going to feel. But obviously he feels pretty good. He was moving well too, just watching him on the bases, watching his jumps in the outfield. He didn't have a lot of action out there but you could see, he was feeling pretty good overall."

Mike Wacha, Cardinals Winning Pitcher
"Nerves weren't too bad. Just kind of anxious to get out there. I mean it's the World Series, big time game. You know, so I just tried to use it to my advantage, to go out there and pitch with some adreneline and so, just trying to block out the fans and the crowd. And I didn't have my best stuff tonight, definitely a little bit more wild, I didn't have the command, but you know I just tried to let my defense play behind me and pitch to contact and they made some great plays."

Mike Matheny, Cardinals Manager
"He continues to impress. I don't know what else you could ask. You put him on any stage and he does a real nice job of limiting distractions. He and Yadi work well together and make good adjustments along the way, but he stuck with his strengths and really went out and was aggressive."
