You know obviously with the scouting we have nowadays. You know Texas and and if so that we are a lot more aggressive than than we were up there and I think things that -- tried to use that for the year and it's -- We were able to keep the ball down in the zone and I think it's you know quick outs and some ground out and -- easy levels. Was it out of some relief to you John obviously you only needed one run tonight you were that good but. To get those four runs in the seventh -- for the team to finally blow open score some runs seem like it was a nice a stress relief -- there. Yeah it was good. You know reflective that'll earlier in the game -- we won't complain about it -- -- a good your good rally together in that seventh and and and score some runs -- and you know this is testament to our lineup and our guys brother battle every at bat whatever.
