ON the MOUND
The shortest start of James’ career couldn’t have come at a worse time . . .
He gave up EIGHT earned runs tonight (after allowing only FIFTEEN in his other ELEVEN starts this season) and also broke his own league-leading streak of 142-batters faced without an extra-base hit (w/THREE allowed – TWO doubles and a triple)
TWO.TWO innings ~ SEVEN hits ~ NINE runs ~ EIGHT earned runs ~ SIX walks ~ ONE strikeout
} Brandon, Tom, Lucas, Danny and Joe combined for the remaining FIVE.ONE innings. The good news is, they didn’t walk anyone. The bad news is they gave up FIVE runs (FOUR earned) on NINE hits
AT the PLATE
FOUR is usually enough . . .
but, not tonight doubles by Robbie and LoMO and homers by Kyle and Chris D fell WAY short
IN the FIELD
a little of everything – good and bad . . .
* PB from Jesus
* error by Chris T
* an OFA by Chris D
* a double-play from Chris-to-Brad-to-Justin
