ON the MOUND
Only the third time Kuma failed to go at least FIVE full and the third time he’s given up FOUR runs to the Astros . . .
FOUR.ONE innings ~ SIX hits ~ FOUR earned runs ~ TWO walks ~ SIX strikeouts
The bullpen faired much better but, too little, too late – Dom, Danny, Tom and Yourvis combined for . . .
FOUR.TWO innings ~ FOUR hits ~ ONE earned run ~ ZERO walks ~ SIX strikeouts
AT the PLATE
Not much to see here . . .
~ Zu’s TWO-run double provided the only scoring for the M’s (Kyle had walk, Brad singled)
~ The Astro rookie Tropiano earned his first major league win in his first major league start
IN the FIELD
JJ had a fielding error and there were no DP’s turned (but, THREE turned against them 😦 )
