ON the MOUND
Mr Young just keeps doing his thing at The Safe and, get a load of this . . .
SIX innings ~ TWO hits ~ ONE earned run ~ TWO walks ~ THREE strikeouts
} Charlie gave up a double but, only needed SEVENTEEN pitches to get FOUR outs
} Brandon had his first real rough patch since joining the pen – giving up TWO runs on THREE hits (he’d only allowed ONE run over the past 20.2 innings)
} Joe took over for Brandon when it appeared he was not going to get out of the 8th – he got TWO outs but, not before allowing an inherited runner to score
} Nando with TWO quick outs (a strikeout and a grounder) then allows a walk and another grounder to end the game and earn that 34th save
AT the PLATE
Only EIGHT hits but, when that nets you SIX runs – we’ll take it!
EIGHT games into this NINE game home stand, only ONE game where they scored less than FOUR runs (TWO where they scored double-digits)
~ Great to see Kendrys coming ’round – a double and a homer tonight
~ LoMon extends his hitting streak to 13-games, recording a single, a double and a run scored (from 1B, due to Rasmus’ error)
~ Kyle continues his assault on his home field w/ his 18th homer of the season 15 at home
~ Dustin keeps it rollin’, adding on in the 5th w/ a TWO-run single
~ there was some hitlessness (Robbie, Mike and both Chrises) but, guess it’s a good thing that they can score SIX runs w/FOUR guys goin’ 0’fer
IN the FIELD
After a plethera of DP’s the past few days – not a ONE was turned in this one.
* Just solid DEE and ONE spectacular leaping catch to end the game – nice job, Dustin!
