But. You couldn't ask for better series if it tested everything that we had. Push us to the limits and just wanted to congratulate them and agree here. -- You got the big blast tonight from a guy who's kind of scuffling a little bit in this series you talk about the -- you know he's a big. When a player just me he's come up big a number of times this season tonight no bigger. It in you know that there's been a lot of push back on a couple of guys our lineup that have had some struggles both Ian and Stephen Drew. But in the seventh inning and Stephen makes a great play at this shut down an inning and potentially another run in and Vick.

In the occur Boston metal plate from to do so. -- and until about your day and then get it. Well you know I think coming into the post season there were there were a lot of questions circling around our guys -- to Bridget to Koji and they couldn't pitch anymore.

He's got a break for a future day. John had two shots again chair as the one you just missed them. Toppled by inches and then the top of the wallets. Gomes later on -- -- any party either alike wondering with navy just -- destined to go your way to -- Well when those opportunities come and go like that we have another big one in the sixth inning or -- minutes second third with two outs -- in any. He induces salty you know pop up in the infield in against great pitchers such as -- -- -- those opportunities that are fleeting and you wonder if you're gonna get him back and but what's been a characteristic of this team is that it never rolls over never -- and a pat and we're able to build that inning and a seventh. Atlanta -- John. John can -- over at a critical election Lewis and won't lest it get -- naught Wednesday. You -- your way ahead of the -- Johnny.
