ON THE MOUND
After 114 pitches, Aaron walked off the mound to a well-deserved gatorade shower as he posted his SECOND complete game shutout ~ woot! woot!
NINE innings ~ TWO hits ~ ZERO runs ~ ZERO walks ~ TEN strikeouts
AT THE PLATE
It’s not everyday that you see a lead off double, where the runner ends up on 3B due to a fielding error ~ in BOTH of the first TWO innings ~ but, that’s exactly what happened to put the M’s in a position to score early. And, whadaya know? They were able to capitalize! Endy scored on a wild pitch with two outs in the 1st and Nick scored on a sac-fly from Michael S.
~ Sometimes it SEEMS like everyday that Rauuuuuuul homers ~ he did it again ~ solo shot in the 6th
~ Kyle hit an RBI single to score Endy in the 8th (who had doubled for the second time)
~ Only SEVEN total hits but, FOUR for extra bases.
