Wladimir Balentien went 1-for-3 against the Hanshin Tigers tonight.

In speaking to reporters after the game, he had this to say:

I was disappointed [about the walk in the 8th] and could only smile.

I was happy when the Hanshin fans booed [when they walked] me.

Honestly, I no longer care about what stadium, I just want to hurry up and get that next home run.
