Weekday, day game – I SO wish I had chosen this one to attend instead of last night. Not only would I have witnessed an M’s victory on a day where I’d normally be at work – I’d have had the added bonus of “hearing the sound of silence” from Blue Jays fans.
ON THE MOUND
Let’s just say Aaron has had a bit of a struggle of late (given up FOURTEEN earned runs in his last TWO starts) . . .
TWO innings ~ FIVE hits ~ SEVEN earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ ZERO strikeouts
} thankfully, at least for now, the bullpen seems to have “found itself” again: Brandon (Win), Charlie, Yoervis, Ollie and Danny (Save) combined for . . . SEVEN innings ~ SIX hits ~ ZERO earned runs ~ SIX walks ~ SIX strikeouts
AT THE PLATE
~ It took them a couple of days but they found their stroke again but, they did, scoring SIX of their NINE runs in the 5th inning to take the 9-7 lead they would not relinquish . . .
~ They pounded out ELEVEN hits including TWO doubles (Justin & Kendrys), a triple (Nick – breaking an 0-27) and a homer (Humberto). Brad, Kendrys and Dustin all had TWO hits, nearly “everybody” scored and the RBI were spread nicely throughout the line up.
IN THE FIELD
Look ma, no errors!!!
Humberto had a passed ball and the M’s didn’t turn any double-plays but, compared to last night, the field play was sparkling.
