ON THE MOUND
And so, for Joe, it turns out the first pitch of the ballgame was an omen of the evening. The solo shot in the first was followed by a an RBI double in the 2nd and THREE doubles, THREE steals and a single in the 3rd to score FOUR and that would be it . . .
THREE innings ~ SEVEN hits ~ SIX earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ FIVE strikeouts
} wow – a night were Tom was the ONLY pitcher that DIDN’T give up a run (TWO full innings of hitless/scoreless ball, in fact)
} Carter, Chance and Luke combined to give up TEN hits, SEVEN runs, FIVE walks and SIX strikeouts in FOUR innings
AT THE PLATE
~ For the THIRD night in-a-row, only FIVE hits and at least ONE error
~ Raul’s double was the only extra base knock
IN THE FIELD
* Abraham with another error 😦
* ZERO double-plays turned
* Man – can (and do!) those Astros run!!! (FIVE stolen bases – THREE of which ended up scoring)
