What did the pitcher say to his friend?

And I told him I loved him and he's my brother and our friendship will always last longer than this silly game and its silly outcome."

Coach Mark Downey praised Koehn's instincts. "He's a tremendous competitor, but as you saw on the video, he understands there is a bigger picture and friendship really matters," Downey told WCCO.

As for Kocon, it's a moment he'll never forget. He told the station, "I was just thinking in 20 years I'm not gonna remember the score of that game. But I'm gonna remember him coming up to me after that and just kind of being there for me when I needed someone."
