Jason Marquis' daughter, Reese, watched Wednesday night's game with family and friends from a suite at Yankee Stadium. She is out of the hospital and still on the path to recovery, but at least the 7-year-old is back to doing many of the things little girls do.

That allows her father to do what he does. Pitch.

"To see where she was a month ago to now is nothing short of amazing," Marquis said. "To just be out on that mound knowing that she's safe is definitely the place where I wanted to be."

But then he added: "I don't want to be there with the bases loaded."
