We’ll take either – as long as it equates to VICTORY!
ON the MOUND
Kuma being Kuma, another one you can “ink” at . . . .
SEVEN innings ~ FIVE hits ~ ONE run ~ ZERO walks ~ THREE strikeouts
} Charlie, Yourvis and Nando combined for TWO scoreless innings. Nando earned his 32nd SAVE to preserve Kuma’s 10th victory and the M’s 61st win. Yourvis only recorded ONE out (came in to get the last out of the 8th) but, it was a doozy!
AT the PLATE
a dropped pop in the 5th seemed to be the break the M’s needed . . .
They scored ALL FOUR runs in that inning (to that point, they’d only had a couple of singles in the 3rd) via a couple of walks, a couple of singles and an error plus and a big three-run jack from Zu (the only extra-base hit the M’s had)
~ a rare (of late) hitless game for both Ack and Kyle
~ but, a THREE-for-FOUR night for the rook (Chris T) w/a run scored
~ multiple hit night for Austin and LoMo
IN the FIELD
Only ONE double-play but, the strike ’em out, throw ’em out was a thing of beauty . . .
