John Canzano McGuire thank him and tough enough. Without Barry -- he did. Know John I think the biggest thing is that we we didn't abandon a plan we continued to stay with having a pretty strict. Strike zone I'm. You know -- or number all the pitches over just off the edge. We're able to bunch some hits and and the three walks combine but. You know David it's the the double. I think it and we felt like we had life on the ninth inning but certainly it elevated a notch or two. And really when you think about the ninth inning they can get back to me was -- walk. He fouls off tough two strike pitch. Takes a close 32 pitch walk. But. You know unfortunately emperor has goes out and injury and we felt like when Smith came in that arm slot -- Jake's doing. Pretty well and was all the reason for. He says that there is lightning team and I think he just -- up. Like this -- never getting out. I think we've seen it. Many times over whether it was a game down in Tampa against -- where we came back. And on the double by -- well in our game today once again and you know that this team. Loves to compete and you know we we help their cause a little bit today it was an outfield defense. They were able to benefit on a couple of two strike pitches that didn't get to the spot for two run base hit by Santana and home run by cuteness but. You know until that 27 out is recorded you know this team doesn't roll over by any means. -- -- -- I can't say it was you know he's getting blocked out I just think he missed that. Just just flat out and you know even then. You know we get Santana down on two and and leaves occur vulnerable played for the base hit put. In Iraq it was just. No other way to say it I don't think he got mixed up with with Stephen and I play it was just him off the homeland. Stanford athlete to Kobe who's struggled a little bit at the plate and I just getting the RBI but more importantly getting -- RBIs in that situation how much can that maybe start to get them on the right track I'm. Well we'll hopefully it gives them a boost the confidence you know I guess the base at the previous at bat and we've seen his on base frequencies starts. Pick up over the last week. You know either by walker or some base hits so he gets obviously the key hit of the day with the with the game winner so. I would certainly hope that this will have a carry over effect. Felix can hit pretty hard this year -- two counts. What do you attribute that to. Maybe just kind of rushed into the back and not continuing the same. Approach thinking maybe that might be over before it actually is you know he gets etiquette -- with two fastballs and then he missed -- it was another fastball only a two home run. He'd thrown two previous off speed pitches to Santana today and I backed up the curve ball another one that you know kind of repeat strikes against very good hitters see you better miss to the extreme and and that hasn't been the case but. You don't even though he continues to make progress I thought today was another step in the right direction form overall. And yet you can pinpoint a couple of things that. He can be better for sure.
