It once he gets settled into the flow of the game. As we know worked on his release in the first inning -- two. We usually. Continued. To use all of his pitches and I thought his curve ball was changed to that. Really slowed him down you know it's an aggressive swinging team and he was it would carry that -- Just the overall approach through hopefully it innings of work -- just a very often today they continue to put up -- -- -- And we take a look at some of the things we talked about Logan's second base in the event that something happened to Austin turns the double play mix and I expect him play them little. But it just. On the heels of last night just -- the game and strong effort. Not a whole lot but we know as an athlete. And when we've. Take a look at him at first -- -- put -- on Paul's side. Shift. Was logical choice of what position. Three innings -- work. -- It. -- it and when you look at the bottom half with driving in runs. It was a very good production up and down -- come back -- -- and that was about well I'm back here. -- he gets on the board first with two run homer and settle quality events. Just some more general soreness and go back. To three days dispute first please -- -- and so. It. You know I think when we get through the next couple of days so consumers that. And we certainly have to factored in then and there will be a big part of that as we make those decisions. It. More strikes it's clearly more strikes and more -- strikes. You know he was down the down the -- on his fastball more consistently today was a lot like the start three -- three outings ago against Arizona where. He was able to get down in the strike zone. And with much greater consistency. He's lost. It still. Are there. -- -- -- -- -- On a day like today not know because I thought he is he. Establish a good war effort level and with the the lead that we had he didn't necessarily overthrow. I thought his last outing against New York Q he was more powerful in the time before Kansas City but. -- they usually carry that rhythm from the eight innings. Compact swing student of the game. Always prepared and ready to go -- he knew he knew. Yesterday when they announced it was gonna start that he'd be in there today so young when he has a full 24 hours to prepare in a starting role he seemed to come up there. -- -- Very well the. Well certainly he's -- he's excelled in the role. So why not play for probably isn't it doesn't weigh on him mentally regardless of what's taken place in the previous. At bats he's had. I like sentence it's more about his preparation and ago. -- -- No could see even when he sat for a couple of days you know he puts up a very good at that you know he's got to be disciplined approach. And he poses a threat particularly useless and pitcher. -- Pretty consistently this year and reached. It is supposed to -- on here. Well the series wins are good particularly on the road. We kind of mark this know nineteen game stretch is. Or personally I did you know just as a as a challenging three -- structure and logistically in and who we're playing and I had to. Turn the -- a little bit in this series is definitely good things we're gonna play against a very hot and talent team then our. -- In the box is a little more squared up -- the stance and -- on Tuesday through the middle of the field and and have. Tight coverage. To the outside part of the plate where -- before he went down in addition to pressing a little bit human -- and pull off some pitches a little more. And I think he's back to what he's where he was last year for those from the time he was here. Because you -- on that side of the field yeah. That that's what it is athletic has in fact he was on the side of the infield. For us. Yeah yeah it was it was. Had good rhythm to it. You know first time it's been done at game speed. But it's today provided because of the score provided us to do to get a couple of guys off their feet and take a look at that so. You handle it Woody's. We're. No. I mean who I think we're looking forward go to -- Dodgers but as far as greater emphasis or. Other meaning she. We we can we can't look at it any differently than in a series we play at home or one we just completed here.
