Well Jonny Gomes is Willis. One of our stars of the game today Johnny and an outstanding day with the bat going two for for a single and homer but. Johnny would get to that the moment have you ever seen a game end quite like that. No not exactly you know -- tell you would you know when you come into the game -- throwing you know you -- know the situation. And -- take -- -- others to out -- Turns out there was only one. And it turns that Johnny this your home run was the difference in the game man who won the that they stopped Garcia that was the winning run. Yeah I mean I tell you would you know these he's 40. For a five games that we play so tough to see in the middle and it -- to see it late so all runs matter. I was gonna ask you about that Johnny because those as the day progresses it is really tough spot there in the outfield. In and you're saying it's equally tough if not more so for the hitter. Thought that way more tougher than that are absolutely. You know get that lefty all the credit in the world you know finish him off for them but you know very difficult to pitch. And you know off speed through -- tough to pick you know with the shadows. So and then again you sub Bailey you know I mean he had swing and swing and miss stuff -- his off speed. So you know good went. And Johnny yet you started today and also had that. They get that quickly Red Sox had there what you scored the brother but the -- -- to -- actually the fourth inning -- that same left right after Ramon Broadway jumped on the first pitch. We JU was -- a great aggression there. Yeah. I mean I think it's been awhile since I started as a righty in losses it kind of started general. You know first at bat you know as. You know you don't wanna call it a warmup you know these kind of got to get your timing down. It's always icing on the -- -- hit your first at bat you know which -- -- when you played for awhile but connect you know get my timing down. Carpet homered houses can jump on them for a strike right after that. -- years is a very tough gig you probably the toughest gig on on this club because your playing time sometimes is not consistent. Most of times I consistent but. I need to do and how do you get timing continue to do batting cages can you do that at times other than in games. What they -- either one thing you can't simulate and that's a game situation I mean you can take a thousand acts but you know even batting practice and the guys not on the mound. You know you don't get that angle coming from a pitcher. The name of the game you know pitching I mean repeating your -- very you know I mean it just on the timing. Hitting you know you're -- your foot down getting on time. You know stuff it really is I I don't recommend it to anyone stretchers were the lefties are right now in this game with some of the big lefties you know especially in the AL east and in an American -- But I just got here you my name's called that -- about that John Lackey -- two runs four hits before he gets it out of them and -- ball. Yeah I mean you know that rice -- a lot you know about a veteran and you know the -- Bulldog mentality. I don't think anyone's gonna you know lay down after a start like that. And you know I mean is he such a pro and spotted in two runs you know we had his back on the lead at any -- is we're gonna shut down mode. He's been pitching awesome lately insisted that he's healthy and I mean you so he can do today Johnny thanks very much well done and we'll see you tomorrow our guys think.
