Cliff Pennington talks about the carryover in momentum that propel the A's to their series win over the Mariners.
With Cliff Pennington is standing back downstairs and -- before we talk about tonight's game I'll answer one question about last night. How important was beating Felix Hernandez after losing and being swept by the Angels and can that carry over into tonight's game. I actually it definitely can. If there's one of those pitches his game. And you know coming off three tough losses in a row and got one of those guys amount of the game the face in and night it's you know if you know it's a bit battle and it was a great game for -- but there. In counseling about who we could against him -- that ability. Well tonight was kind of a blueprint of what you guys did last night but I'm curious you have such a great approaching you had a good approach to him in the past because he's white hot. And you've had success against him in the past what was it that you were looking for to him and you've carried over -- got another your five your last day so you're saying about really well what do you look at for up there. Playing right now I mean really im just trying to get this and it you know just skip thank you to simple normal normal stuff. -- I realize I had. You know better numbers against Felix and everybody else if he passes it. Some reason it's worked in the morning thank you right. Don't -- -- -- that's a tough year for offensively if you feel like maybe. Things are starting to go your way a little bit obviously you know. Hoping to get your batting average to 250 that's probably not gonna happen but you feel like things start to turn in their turning at a good time. Yeah I mean really. This year offensively. There's nothing I mean -- -- -- just didn't get out the rest of these and it's not gonna turn out too low self. I mean it's just all about trying to get -- -- -- some help the team win. You know we -- guys doing that not slow but not -- season -- story you kind of do. We'll pay the bottom of that orders really carried you guys and you've been phenomenal guitarist with a couple big hits. You're white hot right now. And not only value playing great defense and Antonia. There was a nice little move you made I think it was fourth or sixth inning and I can't remember but you get a nice little hero that I do. I -- likened it to not vehicle many cheap your call the play. The Saunders played it. Yeah like he yeah I hit it kind of knuckle bump me up back. I don't think based on overtime and short so. It was just you know trying to catch him in you know thrown out anyway possible so simply not a move like either short I don't think that. You know for a guy you you say did you would've done it sure yet great instincts and you and I have impressed with your footwork around the back how is the adjustment been for you at second base. Obvious you know let's don't -- can help you could hope for. -- American now they're single day and really trying to you know I'm missing out quickly tank is you know and he's because quit and you know try to keep it simple trying to make it this athletic baseball moves and not trying to get too technical with that has. You know we don't put too much and that in your head when you're just trying to play baseball so that we're donuts he's working our. You've got a good job trust the other side of the bag so -- he put up nice job cliff appreciate it thanks guys.
