"It wasn't pretty, it was a grind," Albers said of the first couple of innings. "That's how the game goes sometimes. You've got to persevere through that and stick with the game plan."

Until he makes an adjustment, they're going to continue to attack him the same way. It's a real challenge for him right now. I don't think he's afraid of any challenge, but it's time to start adjusting back."
