But for the grand slam, ‘t was an 8-7 victory 😉
ON THE MOUND
Aaron used up his “monthly bad start” already here on the 2nd of August (he’s had one game every month where he’s given up 6+ runs) . . .
FIVE innings ~ SEVEN hits ~ SEVEN earned runs ~ TWO walks ~ ONE strikeout
Brandon didn’t fair any better in his second appearance since being recalled . . .
THREE innings ~ FOUR hits ~ FOUR runs ~ ZERO walks ~ TWO strikeouts
(Well, at least the bullpen got some rest after the horror show that was the series in Boston)
AT THE PLATE
Certainly a decent night at the plate . . .
~ TWELVE hits ~ TWO doubles ~ FOUR homers ~ 3-5 w/RISP
(unfortunately, lately, it seems that when the offense clicks, the pitching implodes and when the pitching is shut-down, the bats ice up)
~ The “Michaels” had a nice night, combining for TWO homers, ONE double, THREE runs, FIVE rbi
~ Kendrys continues to scorch, FOUR for FOUR (including a homer), TWO runs scored and TWO rbi
~ Humberto with his first Mariner home run
IN THE FIELD
ZERO dp’s and TWO errors (Raul and Brad) . . . certainly not a stellar glove night
