ON THE MOUND
Definitely not one of Kuma’s stellar outings but, he kept ’em in it . . .
5.2 innings ~ EIGHT hits ~ THREE earned runs ~ TWO walks ~ FIVE strikeouts
} Yoervis bent, giving up a hit and a walk, but didn’t break in his 1.1. inning
} Ollie didn’t even record and out
} Carter got that rare distinction of the blown save AND the win for his ONE inning of work where he walked TWO and gave up TWO hits and a run
} Danny gave up a hit in the 9th but, recorded his THIRTEENTH save
AT THE PLATE
Only EIGHT hits but nice that they were THREE for SEVEN w/RISP . . .
~ Justin with a TWO-run double
~ Nick and Kyle both with RBI singles in the same inning
And then there was Rauuuuuuul with his 27th homer (a solo shot) his second in as many games
IN THE FIELD
* Nick and Guti both with steals
* Carter with a pick off (and Brad was picked off)
* Nice DP turned
