NINTH INNING VICTORIES ARE ALWAYS FUN, EVEN IN SPRING!
Offense? Wow, M’s had some today…
Smoak hit his second spring homer (and this one from the RIGHT side), Bradely kept racking up the RBI and Figgins going 3 for 3 with an RBI and a SB, Steven Baron gets the winning hit in the NINTH And, the collective ELEVEN hits and SEVEN runs ain’t half bad either.
Unfortunately, the bad news was with the starting pitcher…
Jason’s ERA went from just over TWO to just over FOUR today – the FIFTH inning was especially rough. Here’s hoping it was just the inevitable “spring wall” and nothing to worry about.
LOTS OF NEWS AND NOTES TODAY
Seemed to surprise many, including me. Good luck, Paper Boy!
