For the one broom ball I don't play but. More importantly we got him through six innings we got him up over many pitches in and that was somewhat the objective tonight in addition to it. Going out and give -- chance to win. Large part because -- got four very good pitching go to him in any count. He's got the ability to manipulate the ball movement off the bat head in those fastball counts whether it's a cutter or sinker. And I think he he never feels like he's.
