Walk yes to buy home run and don't remember don't forget the two. Run. Home run he had two tie it. Before Anthony Rizzo came on and then walked it off. With back home runs absolutely, David Bodey he's not a little. Boat Again Habit of. This you heard that. Too right Join, casper, and Jim dish as on NBC sports Chicago I'm Chris black along with Adam and we will talk comes here. To start if, you, want, to, join, us, it's, three. One two three two three seven seven six it. Was a good game for the Chicago Cubs I they get the home run late from, Daniel Murphy. In the eighth and you're like all. Right here we go new guy shoes up he hits the home run. And then the bullpens going to close out Pedra stroke then gives up a home run. In the following half. Inning Game two to. The game goes into the tenth and that's. Where David Bodey, gives the heroics once again, and the one. Thing I want to kind. Of bring up to you Adam as we start this conversation tonight. Is what a fantastic story David Cody has been this year for the Chicago Cubs, well he's a great story because he's. Kind of been in the minors the entire. Time he comes up he hits that. Great walk off against the nationals on Sunday night and then he goes into this like. Oprah slump for like over eighteen over twenty something like that he hits, home, run a couple days ago and then again with this walk off pinch hit home run it was great for. Him great for, the, cubs, after, a, rare, blown, save. For Pedra Strope he's been pitching really well as. Of late having a really good year so far Carl Edwards junior's been struggling as well, he was. Struggling to find the strike zone he. Only goes two thirds of innings we'll talk to Sharma at the bottom. Of the hour and get some answers on that but for Alec mills Come in and to, pitch five and two-thirds innings of one run ball is. More than I expected from someone getting a call up basically pinch hit start right yeah and he had a four point something you are. A in the minors so it's not like he's been. Blown, away guys in the minors he comes up he starts a game he gets into the fifth inning. That that's all you can ask for for a spot start like. That and it's exactly what this cubs team needed and they've gotten great starting pitching, as of late. Cole hamels last night John lesser was really. Good Cal Hendrix, is starting to find the, groove so really. The pitching has been there. Playoff-caliber pitching now you just need the lineup to show up they. Only give you three runs today enough to win but you'd like to see more, production from this offense yeah they go. To three yards and scoring position which is. Good for them usually they struggle with. Runners in scoring position but they got production where they needed it Daniel Murphy comes in. Hits his first home Run as a cub has, had a couple of hits and got some. Guys in and then you had David buddy Here's Joe men, after the game. This is his post game press conference if you're just getting into your car you're starting your weekend you're leaving work here's what Joe man had to say today after the game She was really good I mean it started out that one to. Two pitches the ball the Williamson obviously than. Urban was hanging, curveball other than that he. Didn't make any mistakes The fast food good life coming back the change. It was a real pertinent pitch for him. And he threw, some good hawks was not Emotionally affected, he was got is good the whole time Really not standing performance by him and then obviously needed that to utilize the bullpen and, what we did in the latter part of the game even though we use a. Lot of guys numbers of pitches thrown are pretty minimal so I think we're going to be pretty good. Shape tomorrow and Alec brunette. That to happen Was good Really good We've seen them continually get better since he's been. Over here Spotting up the slider fastball where he wanted to change It's a very good pitcher the thing that I noticed I thought I. Did was three to county through. Strike almost every time so he was not like wild if he was missing to get to three to count is because he's choosing to make pitches when you. Got the three to strike almost every time I, thought so it was an astounding performance by him too Yeah. This is one of those habitual things will take Well Pitcher makes a mistake like. That you don't take. Off you just can't miss it and was a hanger needed miss. It just, like you, know that was the same thing backtracking even, further but Daniels homerun to put us on top professional. Hitter they're mad and, again he did. Not this is twenty. Sought so the game was decided by the long ball towards the end really good. Game I thought, overall those really good game also thought I liked the way confirms on the bat better. Tonight I know you said one hit this, afternoon but I like a liked his approach a lot better. Today I thought that was really. Good so that's something to look forward to also that's Joe Madden post-game. Presser, thanks NBC, sports Chicago for the press conference. There speaking of Kelly, Kroll our friend NBC's, port. Chicago she got a chance to talk David David Bodey after the game on the. Field here's Bodey with Kelly. Crowe You got a. Knack for this off thing Oh man Pitches taste. Three, earlier Got it okay you were joking on the walk over the discipline was a little anticlimactic Away and we'll take them as as best we get them A great team win we. Didn't play well Got. It done pinch-hit grand You got the fans on their feet and what was pitchy we're, looking for in that moment. Housing for. A. Pitch up He hung the cider there and I stayed on down got it up You watch the ninth inning unfold there with binge raced? In the guy's really, battling it out what changed in the next inning from. An approach standpoint Scott six what you wanna do not. You know he's calling it down he started opened up down there but you can't worry about. That he's got worried about what you're trying to do Just trying to get on. Base really there I wasn't trying, to hit a Homer just really. Trying."
