ON THE MOUND
James had all he could handle with the Tiggers . . .
95 pitches in only FIVE innings is WAY too much and when you walk more than you strikeout, not a good sign. But, still a lot of good learnings to take away from this start.
FIVE innings ~ FIVE hits ~ THREE runs ~ FOUR walks ~ THREE strikeouts
} Tom and Charlie combine to give up TWO runs on FOUR hits and ONE walk and mess up a victory for James
} Yoervis retired the TWO batters he faced in the 8th
AT THE PLATE
NINE hits for each team but only TWO for extra bases for the M’s (Nick double, Dustin homer) compared to FIVE for the Tiggers (FIVE doubles and ONE homer) was the story
IN THE FIELD
No errors and only ONE DP turned in the entire game (Seager-Smoak)
