ON THE MOUND
Erasmo was far from sharp . . . .
never a good sign when your pitcher gives up more runs than innings pitched (and he also hit a couple of batters)
FOUR innings ~ EIGHT hits ~ FIVE runs ~ ZERO walks ~ ONE strikeout
Unfortunately, he was not alone in his “dullness” . . .
} Carter was no help (a common occurrence of late) . . . he faced THREE batters, retired NONE and gave up TWO runs
} Bobby gave up ONE run in his ONE inning
} Chance gave up THREE in his TWO
} Lucas was the sole effective pitcher – much too little, much too late
AT THE PLATE
Sad story . . .
~ Abraham had the loan XBH (a double ) and a sac-fly to score Endy
~ Guti had an RBI single that scored Abraham
IN THE FIELD
Dustin nailed at 2B by Molina (though, the reply appeared to show he was safe) . . .
losing track of the CS’s in this series – curious that they finally running when there’s a great catcher behind the plate 😦
