Jim what a -- still really the last two games of this series the Cubs coming out. On top I know as a manager boy it really is nice when you can have a starter go deep you know -- game and then utilize your bullpen the way Mike Quade diseases. Yeah absolutely I mean I'm really impressed with the pitching in this series you know Garcia yesterday Rodrigo today just. Great ball game and -- really needed him down. And Mike did a great job the last couple innings you know laughter. Very blessed to not a game what he's doing his thing but Mike matching up real good and got an out with Marshall. Let long we'll take address the way and not. You know I don't like sleep good tonight. He's going to get arrested -- and you go match you know pictured a batter almost if you need to and that's what Mike Quade did in this series. The Cubs do win are the White Sox win the overall series two games to one however. It felt like it was quite a battle back and forth with with good pitching on both sides. Yeah I mean you know there was oh lead in the first game by the Cubs got away from home yes and they -- great ball game. You know it's one of those -- you got to give White Sox credit they went to a three but it -- gone the other way just as well I just. I kind of hope that this team and maybe be a little ahead to this board -- the Cubs did it rule before the all star break and maybe feel better about themselves coming out of the break. And it was a clean game well played game you know He had the one era by a promise from errors but otherwise both sides played very well I wanna I wanna talk about the White Sox. In the fact that obviously Lopez is very good game they struggled a little bit offensively. On Dunn could have been a key in this game and came up short you know for one. Yet you know before the game I was asked about a lot -- going to be keys of the game and I. Had a little bit lucky with Castro went up -- I thought Allen -- was gonna break out today I thought it was a good match up with him when Rodrigo when Rodrigo is. Lopez we just outstanding in. He just wouldn't give it up.
