It was kind of awkward the way it all unfolded. You know outside of -- home run there was a lot of awkward kind of things that occurred just one of those. -- -- that -- Fenway tonight kind of you know that you -- it took advantage of the -- we did not. And they -- on top as I thought David had really good stuff. Right up to the last pitch you just had a really it's seventh inning -- -- Collison -- a fastball to Ortiz hits another home run but he did not throw the ball badly at all is kind of a weird night. The way -- the except for them and against us the first it's Ellsbury were quirks in the -- I saw it right in. You know Egyptian peace and said that's that's kind of fortunate for them to Russell was well struck me David Ortiz together -- -- night at home runs against the that was the report. So they did a couple though that -- -- I mean he got them. So the other stuff again it's just there's there's certain games you have. Things -- in your favor certain game you know why can't concede -- -- -- Awful pitches to Ellsbury and get to it so. That's just part of their side and in the bunch of veterans that are really smell it and kind of ruling it. Mean that's kind of which you saw there not necessarily that Dave was that. Your guys have always been very resilient and now the ultimate. So all things. Just talk about all the open about them coming obviously just been through week of backs against the lowly announcers that you new to us. It's very difficult there's no question about it's going to be difficult to go home and Alex's. Fortunately he's pitching that game three forest and have to fight streaking for -- and pitched that to get back here for game five but I don't think it's impossible by any means. We've been in in this boat in the past and we forced game fives in those situations also. So you know Boston system it is kind of locally -- for the coming back in the days.
