Suns' Lundberg confident

In today's Times-Union, Jacksonville pitcher Spike Lundberg said the Suns' season, despite a top-notch record, is "not done yet." Jacksonville hosts the Biscuits tonight to start a best-of-five playoff series.

Other notable quotes from Lundberg ...

On the Biscuits' sweep last month in Jacksonville: "Plus they came in here the last series and took care of business. We're looking forward to payback. They played well, and we played probably our worst series of the season."

On his loss to Montgomery in last month's series: "That was their best game against me this year after I had beaten them three times. But I'm still confident going into this series. It's not a matter of revenge. It's a matter of getting the first win for the team. We want to set the tone in this series in the first game. ..."

Lundberg was the Southern League's top pitcher this season. The 29-year-old finished 15-2 with a league-leading 2.27 ERA. He starts against Jeff Niemann tonight.
