ON the MOUND
Erasmo dug himself into a hole early, giving up TWO doubles and TWO homers so, despite pitching out of a bases-loaded jam in the 3rd, that would be his last inning
THREE innings ~ EIGHT hits ~ FIVE earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ FOUR strikeouts
BP was NAILS!
Tom + Dom + Danny + Nando = SIX scoreless innings, giving up only TWO hits, TWO walks and NINE strikeouts
AT the PLATE
Surprises abound in Hot-Lanta . . .
~ Stefen with a PINCH hit THREE-run homer (that tied the game at FIVE in the 4th
~ John with his FIRST homer as a Mariner (a TWO-run shot that put the M’s ahead for good in the 7th)
~ Brad and James with the other RBI’s
Plenty of hits (THIRTEEN) w/ a couple of stark contrasts . . .
~ Kyle and Justin = 0-10
~ Robbie and Michael = 5-10
IN the FIELD
