4.15. DET/OAK postgame -- Brandon McCarthy
-- -- -- -- thought was pretty good outing on the whole way. Think battling command for a little bit. Little bit and there wasn't as as sharp as I felt like in my first two outings. Affiliate -- a good job making. -- two pitches to get out of some some jams and sounds good pitches and good hitters and so -- with in that regard. Sailor was the ovation was also coming off I just wish I hadn't completely. Concluding months in the wonder appreciated you know so the fans I present is gonna to have -- and I was gonna clout. And I got sucked in the middle -- what to do -- up -- my head or something I don't know what that was and so I just want to know that I appreciated and there's really -- -- You don't others. So yeah. Nor was inside my comments until I worked on in and everything got to do my arm you know it's a tough way to to kind of finish -- game we've. We played well we're just gonna wait a minute to break out offensively there and it just kinda just kind of unraveled before -- book. That's situation and most of time especially with was once as -- it's not gonna happen and we know we're gonna do to get through that assists totals one off games. It's kind of battle of or control. And the bullpen pitchers with a few strengths payment and it's fault zone. Few times early season and that's of the guys I don't count it a strong -- this. -- coming through those two years. And I'd I'd be surprised if we didn't overcome and it's. You know again we're still doing such a small sample size -- were only that includes 1516 games in the season. So to look in into panic about something those -- are strengthened and will be our strength. Is probably just get blown out of ourselves we. Fairways they focus on what they're supposed to do -- -- keeps working -- the -- when that is gonna end up being a strength for us when your defense will be back to where it's supposed to be. And it's your last start and seniors losing quite. An increasing number ground ball outs is something you've been working on from spread system in the past -- this -- in the -- pitcher and our seniors getting a lot of that. -- -- you're trying to do. You -- a -- was I'm just kind of changed completely as a pitcher and there is from two years ago there's nothing that's still there that I used to do before it was forcing curveball changeup and now it's it sinker cutter curveball changeup fought. The goals early contact it's it's keep the ball on the ground it's it's manageable contact as opposed to to pitching around guys and and and hoping for good things this is just force the issue and they keep the ball on the grounds of the ground balls being there is is. Does -- handle a lot of hard work that that I wanted to be -- result.
