Please help me with the underlined part of this paragraph...give me a brief explanation!! Thanks~~SEATTLE -- Before Tuesday's game, Jason Giambi was in a place he's become very familiar with these days: standing by home plate in the indoor batting cage, with hitting coach Don Mattingly by his side and countless pitches speeding in his direction. Once Tuesday's game started, Giambi found himself in a place he hasn't visited very often: the comfort zone. Giambi, who has been struggling all year and was demoted to eighth in the Yankees' batting order this week, snapped out of it in a huge way for a night. He got three hits, including a monster solo home run, and his three RBIs helped spark New York to a 6-0 victory -- the Yankees' season-high 10th win in a row -- over the Mariners, before 35,549 in Safeco Field. "I knew I wasn't that far off," said Giambi, whose batting average jumped from .204 to .227. "I knew I was putting in the work and that it was just a matter of time." Giambi isn't the only Yankee who can now claim to be "locked in." The whole team seems to be coming around, as a matter of fact. Even manager Joe Torre. Starter Carl Pavano -- he of the nondescript 2-2 record and 4.80 ERA going into Tuesday's game -- pitched his best game in pinstripes by far, going the distance on a five-hit shutout that took him 133 pitches to complete. Former Mariner Alex Rodriguez added a two-run home run and now leads the Major Leagues in long balls with 13.請幫我解釋一下藍色加底線的部份!!謝謝~~

    the comfort zone: 適合打擊者的範圍

    that far off: 差得很遠

    can now claim to be "locked

    in: 目前可自稱處於穩定狀態 (球打得好, 表現出色)

    going the distance on a five-hit

    shutout: 投了整場球賽, 對方擊出五個安打, 沒有讓對方得分
