ON THE MOUND
oh dear, poor Brandon – he gave up SEVEN runs and wasn’t able to get out of the FIRST.
Kameron wasn’t much better, surrendering FIVE runs and giving up THREE of the Astros FIVE homers.
Not to be left out, Charlie and Oliver each gave up a long ball (as well as their sparkling 0.00 ERAs)
AT THE PLATE
Well, on ANY other night, NINE runs equals a win – problem was on THIS night, the other team got SIXTEEN
So, to focus on the positive, on what was a pretty horrible night (including the LOWEST ever attendance – 10,745) the M’s hit THREE homers (their first at The Safe this season) off the bats of Jason, Raul and Michael M (the last two went back-to-back in the 8th and kept battling even when the game was out of reach (put up a FOUR-spot in the 9th)
IN THE FIELD
TWO double-plays (both, Brendan-to-Dustin-to-Justin)
