ON the MOUND
Mr Young had a nice bounce-back start – didn’t go far and didn’t get the win but, kept ’em in it . . .
Too many walks (although ONE was intentional) and too many pitches prevented him from getting a career high THIRTEENTH victory but, still worlds beyond his last start and still a serious candidate for Comeback Player of the Year
FIVE innings ~ FOUR hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ZERO earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ SIX strikeouts
The bullpen strikes (’em down) again . . .
} Carson, Charlie and Danny combined for THREE scoreless innings, Danny went TWO and got the W
} Nando a quiver-free 1-2-3 9th for his league-leading 43rd save
AT the PLATE
ELEVEN total hits – only TWO w/ RISP but, it was enough . . .
~ Kyle was the star – which is nothing new, especially vs. the Rangers – THREE hits and only TWO w/RISP, including the game-tying homer in the 4th and a single and a run-scored in the 8th
~ Awesome to see Brad contributing – even in his now reduce roll – FOUR hits today, including a double
~ Robbie had a hit and scored a run
~ Kendrys had another TWO hits – he and LoMo each recorded RBI singles
~ the bad news of the day was Dustin coming out of the game with an ankle injury of some sort 😦
IN the FIELD
* Ack with a nice sliding catch of a pop foul – had to run far and slide in time
* M’s didn’t turn any DP’s but did have TWO turned against them
* Danny with a pick-off at 1B
* Brad with an error which was followed by the unearned runs
