ON THE MOUND
A rather Jekyll and Hyde night for Joe . . .
SEVEN innings ~ SIX hits ~ SIX earned runs ~ TWO walks ~ NINE strikeouts (125 pitches!)
} Good to see a clean inning, including a K, from Tom
AT THE PLATE
The M’s out-hit the Halos (9 to 6) but just didn’t get enough across but, HUGE congrats to Rauuuuuuul !!!!
In the 9th inning, Raul got the M’s to within ONE run with his 29th homer of the year ~ which tied Ted Williams for most as a 41-year-old. It was all the 300th homer of Raul’s long, solid career.
IN THE FIELD
No DP’s from either side (unfortunately, ONE steal ~ of home ~ for the Halos ~ and it was the difference of the game)
