ON the MOUND
Call him King Felix , call him Felix the Cat, but, no matter what you call him – he’s ALL OURS!
D O M I N A N T . . .
EIGHT innings ~ ONE hit ~ ZERO runs, earned or otherwise ~ THREE walks ~ NINE strikeouts
} Nando only needed TEN pitches to retire the side in the 9th before he let the arrow fly (line out, strikeout, ground out)
AT the PLATE
Every starter except Stefen collected at least ONE hit (and, coincidentally, he was sent down to AAA after the game as the predecessor move to bringing up Tiajaun for tomorrow in Houston)
~ Robbie and Kyle each had TWO hits
~ ONE of Robbie’s counted for TWO as he homered with Michael aboard to give the M’s the 2-0 lead in the 6th, then in the 8th, Robbie hit an infield single and advanced to 3B on Kyle’s single and then scored on Mike’s base hit
IN the FIELD
* Kyle continues to make a strong case for All Star/Gold Glove – today with an awesome start to the 5-3 DP, a liner and then fire to 1B to double-off the runner (and LoMo deserves credit for the s t r e t c h as well)
“Two away, what a double-play!” – – Rick Rizzs
* Kyle also STOLE a double with a snare of a smash liner for the first out of the 9th
