Skip said Dustin had the AB of the game . . .
a 13-pitch FC that scored a run and, for all intents and purposes, knocked Lackey out of the game for the Sox and opened the flood gates for the Mariners – they now have the second best run differential in baseball +46
Mariners 12 | Red Sox 3
ON the MOUND
Felix was Felix again . . . ho hum
He earned his NINTH win of the season by posting his EIGHTH straight game of SEVEN innings or more with TWO earned runs or less
SEVEN innings ~ TWO hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ SIX strikeouts
} Dom and Tom combined for TWO innings of relief (Dom struck out TWO, Tom allowed a run in garbage time)
AT the PLATE
Lookie here – runs for Felix!!!
FOUR doubles (Robbie, Kyle, James, Mike) ONE 3-run triple (Endy) TWO homers (LoMo) 6-11 w/RISP
~ LoMo homered to tie it at 1-1 in the 2nd
~ In the 4th, Kyle singled, driving in Robbie to tie it at 2-2 and then the flood gates opened: Dustin had a 13-pitch AB (7+ minutes!) w/ONE out and the bases-loaded – ended in RBI FC and w/Kyle scoring the go-ahead run when Lackey couldn’t cover 1B, then a WP in the next AB extended the lead to 4-3 and then Endy’s bases-loaded triple tacked on THREE more for a total of a SIX run 4th
~ LoMo added another RBI in the 5th with a single after Kyle’s double.
~ In the 7th, JJ led off with a double and then scored on Robbie’s single. Robbie moved to 2B on a WP and then scored when Kyle singled. Kyle scored on LoMo’s second homer of the game that sealed the deal (12-2)
IN the FIELD
*Brad with an error in the 1st (the M’s first in SIX games, Brad’s first since May 29th) that led to a run
*Ack with a great, though not very pretty, catch in LF to save a possible HR (unfortunately, he couldn’t get to the next one that DID get out)
