g135 | j u s t enough early O

Mariners 3 | Astros 1

Joe’s best start of the month was his last start of the month . . .
He only went 5+ because of the 86 pitches and multiple runners on a couple of times but, he also retired the side in order twice (with SIX ground ball outs). All-in-all, a good day for Joe . . .
5.1 innings ~ SIX hits ~ ONE run ~ ZERO earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ TWO strikeouts

} Once again, yeoman’s work from the pen with Carter, Yoervis and Danny combining for 3.1 scoreless innings and Danny earning his ELEVENTH save (in TWELVE tries)

Not much O ~ only SIX total hits and NO extra base hits ~  and it all came in the 1st but, they made it stand up . . .
~ Kendrys, Nick and Dustin with the RBI
~ Brad, Kyle and Kendrys with the runs
~ Abraham with a bunt base hit FLEW to 3B on a throwing error by Eric Bedard (LOVIN’ some speed!)

another error (by Nick) but, all around had the feel of a good defensive game . . .
* DP by Kyle-Nick-Kendrys
* some nice catches in the OF
* great diving play by Brad

Some aggressive base-running cost them a couple of outs (Brad with 2B steal attempt and Kyle with a 2B advance attempt on a passed ball)
