g34 | bats the pits in the ‘burgh

Mariners 1 | Pirates 2

The game was just about over by the time I got to the social event I attended after work – so I was unable to see the “good Aaron” and the “bad bats”.

Aaron’s performance was more encouraging than expected . . .
SIX innings ~ FIVE hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ SIX strikeouts
Sign us up! We’ll take that everyday and twice on Sunday from Mr. Harang

} Charlie posted a nice inning (heard this one on the radio on the way home) with TWO strikeouts
} Carter was a little down, then a little up . . .
ground ball out, walk, then an erase of the walk with a caught stealing, a single by Mr. hit every AB McCutchen) and then BOOM a homer puts the Bucs up 4-1 – where they would stay.

Not a good day at the plate when strikeouts (11) outnumber hits (5) + runs (1) + walks (2) + RBI (1)

~ Rauuuuuuul did what he was actually brought in to do (besides be that “veteran presence” in the clubhouse) come off the bench to pinch hit (an RBI double in this case).
~ Michael S, Kyle, Justin and Dustin each with singles
~ Michael M was p r e t t y  close to wearing the golden sombrero for the evening

* Michael A with a SB
