On the last road trip, the M’s played THREE series (TB, TEX and OAK) – they scored 10 runs, 10 runs and 12 runs respectively and won TWO of those series. Then, they come home and are swept by the team trailing them in the division by scoring TWO runs in the entire series. Un-freaking-believable.
ON THE MOUND
Aaron was in TOTAL command . . .
for the first THREE innings. Things unraveled in the 4th, and again in the 6th, which was his un-doing . . .
5.2 innings ~ NINE hits ~ SEVEN runs ~ TWO walks ~ SEVEN strikeouts
} Luke and Carter and Danny posted 3.1 scoreless with FIVE hits and TWO walks and FIVE strikeouts
AT THE PLATE
Pretty short list here ~ only FIVE total hits and Dustin had TWO of them . . .
including the only extra-base hits (a double and a homer) and the only RBI and run scored (Dustin has definitely been one of the bright spots since the ASB)
IN THE FIELD
No double-plays turned and no stolen bases (on either side)
