Out of some bum writers had the third inning blues three of his four starts he's gotten and knocked around and had very a difficult third innings. Although on Sunday in -- in Arizona. He was able to sort of recoup and it took the ball club into the seventh. But not. Here tonight he just could not get out of that for the for the third and. In that game it's not that he he was able to to find his breaking ball. And I became a big -- before we gets Theres no doubt like here he never really had that weapon. It was pretty much out there with nothing but fastball and if we get this a little bit tonight in it that it can be a frustrating strike -- to throw when you think you should get strikes and you don't get from the umpire. And Aaron -- he became aggravated it I don't know but. Just the inconsistency it is breaking ball right now as we're he'd be stupid that's an area where he'd be Stewart to improve upon. And hopefully get back started beating he's gonna have four days that would favor get a trying to iron out. And as we all know what. They were getting one of the better mechanics of the game so hopefully get that resolved like -- at doing some good things to talk about -- then you know they were fantastic. Well for Madison Baumgartner. He is a very similar to the spot. That his mound opponent tonight Tommy Hanson was coming into this game -- Had did not pitch well but tonight he got that -- turnaround so the Giants turn to Tim Lincecum against Tim Hudson a battle bases here tomorrow afternoon. And that's -- always seems to be at its very best. Pitching after Giants slopes were always he's like he's going up there after tax loss will tomorrow's game is gonna be against. That the two tiptoe into their building that right now but. It's about it doesn't quite have -- ERA the templates that has right now his Gary is the four -- -- one to. Let's give has just been electric and what we've seen from him this year sustained velocity where he starts the ball game and it 94. Plus miles per hour at the end of the 73 that he still thought that he didn't do that last year until September so he's had a mechanical. Groove right now that's a very solid work so tomorrow should be good and hopefully give the Giants back I would call. On the other side of it Tim Hudson is not a guy and that is hitters sure. Coming off a bad night. Usually like to face he's got to get many guys come out of their slumps against. Like he's one of the best global which -- the league you won't see many balls -- both of these so you know if you Bruce poaching you blow to lead lap up with a minute low ball hitters you have. That's the best. Offence against that type of of of an arm everything he has has got movement that works its way down he's so consistent he's so that's how you got beat up so. And other hobbies this slump is not the right where the Jets have lost two games here after an excellent road trip. They lost in the Colorado and then these that the ball again tonight and with -- -- -- -- thing for sure -- we've -- tonight ventures and then -- You like to be ahead going into those late innings because our bullpen is good having a selectors together those eight to ninety geysers presumably in the game right now so the Giants I think there's pressure the office this course -- runs and gets. -- that's going to be jealous more so. That sets the stage for tomorrow they get tomorrow -- on Sunday.
