Yes, it was the “lowly ‘stros” – but, remember the M’s were only 10-9 against them last season and 5-5 going into this series. They finally took care of the business as they should have and put a little dent in that “playing to the level of their competition” they’ve been epitomizing (it’s great when they’re playing good teams, not so much when playing the weak sisters)
ON the MOUND
Mr. Young turned in one of if not THE best start of his season…
TWO solo shots the only damage the ‘stros could muster
SEVEN innings ~ TWO hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ EIGHT strikeouts
} Danny, Yourvis and Nando combined for a scoreless TWO and Nando’s arrow flew for the league-leading TWENTY-FOURTH time
AT the PLATE
THIRD game in-a-row w/double-digit hit game . . .
~ including THREE doubles (LoMo, Robbie and Dustin)
~ middle of the order with all the RBIs (Kyle, LoMo and John)
~ top to mid of the order with all the runs (JJ, Robbie, Kyle and LoMo
~ and they all came in the middle of the game (5th & 6th innings)
IN the FIELD
* NO DPs from either side
* Springer robbed Brad of a sure extra-base hit
