Well good series when particularly how it finished. Take the lead give it back. And we we continued to scrap and claw our way through to manufacture a run in the ninth but. I thought the four game series here we we played very well. We got some moments from the mound that it didn't quite work our way but still you take three or four. Vs anyone. And particularly over the past month away. Ronald played. This was that this was a good answers when frost. Well we've we've we've had some struggles from the right side of the plate there's been some inconsistencies -- and I think. What some of our guys are what analysts say with everyone. They'd like to think that your you're gonna win as many as we having a record as anyone and obviously our record is even increase over what it what it is right now. But Brandon -- Couple big at bats today the -- two double for the two RBIs. We understand where our challenges -- in terms of an opponent and what they might throw against us and we do the best we can with the personnel we have to. XQ. In key spots but it's. Still that this a very good team and very competitive team regardless it was on amount. Leaving it seeded Alex -- -- step in and have debate he did and also did you consider at all since hitting Ortiz there in the ninth for him. Known audience left and you know today was we intended to give David a day off completely he did he did come to mean that late in the game -- -- he was available if needed. Fortunately got the point or we didn't -- and the defense to play that's fire makes fellow line in that eighth inning in addition to the notes or -- -- mean. He's earned the at bat and right on our right against a left hander. With a wind blown tickets and up in the air chancellor Ramon out of here so. Didn't consider. -- for. -- Pharmacia. Plated -- made. At that time of the game at every ski. You know that there's there's some long body parts you gotta get started and get regrouped and and change directions so. A key play. There is ending in two thirds along with proposals to key outs in the sixth inning. Of those two yards. It won't act but job. In addition to the in the fourth inning I thought Brian did a very good job -- minimizing the damage Cuba at all and at two rounds but. It -- the walks in that sixth inning with the bases loaded to get to key out to pop open a strikeout. Good job almost forgot where the. And keep them with the bullpen theme how concerned if at all are you about some of -- -- -- those guys that. They're being asked to do a lot. Well they are in the later. Distribute that a little bit bettors is for starters are considered do everything they can to work people in the games. On a day like today you know you. It's it was smoke and there and dumpster Davis surviving -- we knew we're gonna have it at least three innings the picture of open today. That's why Andrew -- giving him back on track it is one of and one of our main goal right now and it would give our bullpen. A huge lift in this team here's. -- closer view -- and you oh victory those tests there tonight. Well given that the next. Enter to when a ballpark. You know you can look at a number of things that that -- today and that catch that he slides it's a fair ball. You know one of the main reasons. He's been signed yours to cover background and just an outstanding job again today we've seen a number times -- I can't say that would become. Acosta more or take it for granted the range he has up there but. He's made many many plays equivalent to please. I know we've given up a number of them. We have fly ball pitchers and a bullpen and in this ballpark it can be. Risky. But we we can't ask guys to change their style or or be something that they -- We might not be a perfect -- but we've sort of top of the division right now when. We we know where our challenges lie and we're doing what we cancer. Improve in every way that we care. Turns around them. What is if he wins I think. We've been consistent. We've got. A very deep team because there will. It's been well documented those guys need days often and guys that have been missed for those periods of time there's been some inconsistencies performance wise. I think -- -- -- to the overall depth this team. It's certainly not a milestone by any means we've got a long way to go yet but. Mean that's sort of things. Definitely.
