Some interesting moves prior to the game . . .
Tai Walker had been sent down right after the game yesterday, today they put Willie on the DL and called up Jesus Montero and Chris Taylor (major league debut tonight)
AND a TRADE!!!
Goodbye and Good Luck Stephen Pryor . . . Welcome Back, Kendrys Morales!!!
ON the MOUND
Kuma continued his incredible streak of 35 consecutive innings without allowing a walk . . .
Unfortunately, he had a rare lapse in the 3rd, giving up FOUR straight hits – including a THREE run homer 😦 He recovered nicely, keeping the O’s at bay by facing only ONE over the minimum for the rest of his outing (innings 4-7)
SEVEN innings ~ SEVEN hits ~ FOUR earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ FIVE strikeouts
} Yourvis and Charlie each pitch scoreless frames – Charlie struck out the side in order
AT the PLATE
M’s were shutout for the TWELFTH time this season
~ Gettin’ tired of this but, tip o’ the cap to Mr. Chen – he didn’t allow an XBH, just scattered FIVE singles and ONE walk in his EIGHT full innings of work.
~ JJ did steal his 20th bag
IN the FIELD
No DP’s on either side and can’t really speak to the DEE overall as I didn’t see this one either
