but, in shades of last season, he has absolutely NOTHING to show for it.
(shown below after he got through the 8th inning – strikeout, single, single, single, strikeout, strikeout)
EIGHT innings ~ FIVE hits ~ ZERO runs ~ ONE walk ~ TWELVE strikeouts
Felix Hernandez: “It was a great game, both sides. The other guy threw a pretty good game, too.”
BLT was 5 for 5 in save situations so far …
it’s very unfortunate that his one stumble so far had to come after an outing such as Felix had tonight.
That said, it probably should have never gotten to the point that it was only a 1-0 game…
the offense only had FIVE hits ~ FOUR doubles ~ and were only 1 for 9 w/RISP
In the 14 games they have played so far, the M’s have …
~ been shutout twice
~ scored one run twice
~ scored three runs twice
~ scored four or more runs EIGHT times
Why oh why tonight?
Early on there were some good plays that showed heart and hustle…
And, I guess I would be remiss if I didn’t post a photo of the lone RBI guy…
