Okay thanks very much you have butch you -- this is Mike give -- Ellis who was on base running hard all day three for three hit my pitch and walked in. I -- I pitched it looked like you wanted to still bad back and scored -- -- -- the pitcher. I think goes running more out of aggression so my arm bitten her. You know this is one of those -- -- you get on base in and you kind of try to forget about things like ten games going this hopefully score runs and you know make a walker hit by pitch you know her and fortunately it worked out well. Nice that it hurt the other again Mike forgive us because we flinch a little bit whenever Red Sox hitter gets hit by pitch these days or anything else you probably do too but how is your. The place where you got here -- five assists a little -- but luckily got me some also a person hurt pretty good. -- The more I move around and and will my arm if so better off this point. -- -- had that took a lot of frustration out there getting a fourteen runs in the very good around the bases. Yeah I mean. I mean hasn't been walk in the park lately so. Anytime we get on base and -- cause some Havoc and then get some runs that definitely helps so hopefully -- to our offense and we just get rolling from here on out. Like what you see today with Jon Lester twelve strikeouts one shy of his career high. Those six innings obviously could be kept on cruising if the Red Sox wanted to win today what we've seen from him today I just saw the ability to throw four pitches for strikes. You know it -- cutter curve ball. Fastball and changeup all for strikes and he pretty much through where he won and tonight I think everybody knows Jon Lester can be very very good pitcher. You know he's just have a little bit about luck. But -- a -- he's been throwing the ball well lately and and we just have to back him up and they keep. You know going out there and then have his back as we know he's going out there he's working hard in between starts so. You know when he went out there today -- that he was able to throw four pitches for strikes I think that that was great for him and for us. -- -- now still six games remaining on this trip and they going against two teams trying to catch. Yes definitely I mean these these -- important series you know every every series is important but. Plan against Baltimore and and the Yankees. So did we get off there tomorrow rest opening generated go back and went to ball games. And like a personal question any thing one you're doing on the off day in Baltimore. -- one of the most boring people who. On this team but I. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- It in the depth we have very welcome in August snakes like great job and probably you.
