On a cold night. There with a long innings and went down through some of the cage from tournaments just to keep himself loose -- -- Under the conditions under the circumstances they're an outstanding job to continue to put up zeros when it's four.

You know he threw some good teaching resentful left is to finish them off thought he had four pitches for strikes tonight particularly his change up against right handers. And again I think the biggest thing was just the overall efficiency. -- -- -- -- It's -- well I think we've got a number -- professional and personal and not afraid to hit with two strikes.
