ON the MOUND
Roenis had a rough 1st inning . . .
when he hit the lead-off batter and gave up THREE straight singles for the Halos first TWO runs. He settled down in the 2nd and 3rd allowing only one over the minimum but, then in the 4th he gave up a single and had to leave the game with an injury mid-way through the next AB 😦
THREE innings ~ FIVE hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ ONE strikeout
the bullpen, called into early duty and they could not have performed better = SIX scoreless . . .
} Carson continues to impress – he threw TWO complete w/ONE walk and ONE strikeout to earn his first major league victory!
} Brandon, Tom, Joe and Lucas each threw ONE inning, Joe gave up the only hit in relief
AT the PLATE
Well, well, well! What do we have here?!? RUNS, RUNS, RUNS, and lots of fun with numbers – that’s what we have here!
~ FOURTEEN hits
~ THIRTEEN runs
~ SIX doubles (Ack, LoMo, Kendrys, Chris T and Zu)
~ THREE of the SIX doubles were in the 5th inning and drove in runs (Zu, Chris, Ack)
~ Every starter with at least ONE hit
~ Kyle, Kendrys, Chris T and Zu all with TWO
~ Runs and RBI’s nicely scattered throughout the lineup
~ ZERO homers
IN the FIELD
* Joe with a throwing error
* Nice DP turned to end the 1st w/runners on
* Zu threw out Hamilton trying to steal 2B
* Gotta love Zu’s ‘wiser than his years’ handling of Roenis. Apparently he let Skip know that something didn’t seem quite right fairly early on so, they were watching him close and sure enough (unfortunately) he had to come out of the game (elbow MRI coming tomorrow)
