Sort of a surreal feeling to this one, as prior to the game, it was reported that Eric Wedge would not return as manager next season (apparently, his decision). More on that later. Meanwhile, M’s have played the A’s tough all season – not so tonight.
ON THE MOUND
Not exactly the way Felix wanted to end the season . . .
It was a “quality start” and after the rough 1st he was able to settle down but, he just threw WAY too many pitches (106!)
SIX innings ~ FIVE hits ~ THREE earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts
} and then there was Ollie, Carter, Lucas and Tom . . .
with their all too familiar collective ineffectiveness 😦
AT THE PLATE
The bats continue to put up a good ratio of extra base hits but, when the TOTAL hits is only FOUR, doesn’t really matter that TWO of them were homers (Guti and Kendrys) – especially when they’re solo shots. Old Bartolo just shut ’em down.
IN THE FIELD
Only ONE double-play and, another error for Nick 😦
