Jonny Gomes they hero tonight coming back to where he played for many years and Johnny standing by downstairs and game winning home run is always great to have a little bit more meaning being done here in Tampa Bay. Not really you know stay honest truth I mean I would never turn rub anything in there their face and me and I got no respect for the organization they drafted me. Again the opportunity to you know get to the big leagues and run me out there a lot. Doesn't get home runs here but you know that's going to be its top. Got a one of the things that and I know a lot of times let the ball game you try to pitch hitter a power hitter inside to make a mistake. You can do some damage to catch -- moved inside gym and has moved the ball kind of sailed over the middle plate. With two strikes how much you just to reacting what do you think of that situation and even more so you hit -- up home runs here that you don't was gone. On I knew it had a chance you know I did off the bat they get off the end you know you know there's two strike approach -- so ensuing -- and if you. You know the same time I saw the shift that they hadn't center was wide open close -- -- that a little bit and I took -- off and I've got to head out. -- -- -- -- -- Well that certainly was the the big moment in the game but just how -- catch in left field Pena drives and it would not have been out. But it just a sensational play one of the best place we've seen any player make your tell us about the play left field. Let's just -- right there extra innings you know I mean our runner -- vs Bruins weren't positioned your experience so he got dude you can't you you know keeping guys off base. And you know Carlos Pena. -- time. That situation. -- there's no doubt and we talked to out here and I know you and I've talked to everybody's talked about Jonny Gomes hits against lefties and it does well. -- so maybe playing the outfield which you made a great play defensively you hit against a right -- and I think that's of -- five. Three against right handers to against lefties just talk about your abilities to do things that maybe somebody -- you cannot especially. It gets Fridays and play outstanding defense. You know match as the value on that my whole career and I just some I'm just gonna have to stick -- Trying economic leaders believers you know it's it's interest in every time making great plays outside guys not known for that but that was a good point -- to -- -- token that do you one thing I'm not gonna do is stopped working. And I keep working on my trade whether -- you know hit it right he's playing now field. And I and do whatever I can't from manager in the organization to -- touch the plate you know stop them from doing the same. But the pride of Petaluma just a nice job that Buddy Guy that I don't enjoy the rest of the appreciates -- home a little bit.
