3-3 from the Snakes
2-3 from the Pads

Bright Sights…

~ Junior’s flair for the dramatic
a 3-run shot that tied a game vs. the D-Backs in the 8th inning – a game the M’s would eventually win) and a solo shot (in a losing cause) vs. the Padres that was the 5000th in M’s franchise history
~ Ichiro = hot, hot, hot
he continues to lead the majors in BA on his way to another 200+ hit season. He also recorded the 1900th hit in his major league career
~ Russell continues to muscle
picked up right where he left off after returning from his grandfather’s funeral
~ So far so good, with the bat AND the glove for Wladdy filling in for Endy
~ Starters, for the most part were bright – Jarrod had two QS (and actually got one win!), Felix was Felix, Jason was good again and Brandon’s making baby steps in improvement
~ Bullpen was sure and steady as per usual

And look, ma! An 11+ run differential for the home stand 😉

Bleak peeks…

~ losing Endy (due to the outfield collision) for the season
~ losing Yuni (just when he was improving a few things) for a couple of weeks to hamstring strain
