Gibson wants to see more aggressiveness

MILWAUKEE -- Some may think that the D-backs were not patient enough against Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo in Game 1 of the National League Division Series.

Manager Kirk Gibson, though, is not one of them.

"I think we took a lot of really good pitches," Gibson said. "We took six third strikes. In my opinion we should have been more aggressive."

The D-backs struck out 10 times overall, partly a result of Gallardo and partly because of their approach against him.

"The guy pitched a good game, Gallardo threw the ball well," Gibson said. "He threw to his spots, he didn't miss. Give him credit."
