ON THE MOUND
Aaron’s start was far from his worst in terms of giving up runs (though the TWO walks in ONE inning were a bit unusual) he just threw WAY too many pitches (credit the Twins batters for working him hard)
FIVE innings ~ THREE hits ~ ONE earned run ~ TWO walks ~ FIVE strikeouts
} Lucas had a totally clean 9th but, by that time it was too late as Charlie, Yoervis and Danny had already combined to give up THREE runs on THREE hits and THREE walks in THREE innings
(NOTE: this morning, the Mariners recalled Brandon Maurer from AAA Tacoma and optioned Hector Noesi)
AT THE PLATE
Not a lot to see here ~ only SIX hits and only ONE for extra bases (Kendrys’ double)
But, the good news is Brad and Kyle continue to see their averages climb (both with TWO more hits)
IN THE FIELD
* Endy made a great catch and throw to hold a runner at 2B but then, an error on the next play allowed a runner to 3B and to eventually score.
* Seems Humberto was at least serviceable behind the plate. He had an inconsequential passed ball and threw out a runner trying to steal
