g42 | dang that ONE pitch, argh, those ONE run losses . . . .

Second straight one-run loss – in fact, the M’s last FIVE losses have been by a total of SEVEN runs.
That Dozier guy seems to be flying under the radar – he sure was the difference maker tonight.

ON THE MOUND
Roenis pitched well – yes, he gave up a THREE run homer (to one of the league’s hottest hitters) . . .
but, the way he bounced back from that and retired the side in order in the next TWO innings showed poise beyond his years and experience. I think he’s a keeper . . .
SEVEN innings ~ SIX hits ~ FOUR earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ FOUR strikeouts

} Yourvis posted a scoreless 8th and gave them a chance (once again) to come back

AT THE PLATE
0-6 w/RISP tonight, 1-8 last night ~ including multiple times stranding a runner at 3rd with less than two outs ~ ain’t gonna get it done. Bats are streaky, as they’ve had good chunks of time when timely hitting was a strength.

James and Michael are working well at the top of the order and accounted for the only RBIs . . .
James with his first major league triple and Michael with his second homer of the season are two bats that have been hot lately

IN THE FIELD
* no errors 🙂
* ONE DP (didn’t get to follow too much of the game so, not sure if there were any highlight plays)
