ON the MOUND
Not exactly the start we were expecting from Taijuan (we aren’t in Peoria anymore!) in fact his line was basically backward from expectations . . .
3.1 innings ~ NINE hits ~ NINE runs ~ TWO walks ~ THREE strikeouts
the bullpen finally faulters . . .
} The Bartender came in with the bases loaded and ONE out in the 4th and promptly gave up a couple of singles and a double, allowing FOUR runs (two inherited)
} Charlie posted a clean sheet in his ONE.TWO innings, retiring all FIVE batters he faced
} Yourvis gave up a run (the A’s twelfth) in his ONE.ONE innings
AT the PLATE
once again, nothing to see here . . .
~ A measly THREE singles (TWO by Austin, ONE by Kyle) and ONE walk (Justin)
IN the FIELD
* Justin committed a fielding error in the 4th but, ‘t was a bit moot as the A’s already had ELEVEN runs by then 😜
* The M’s turned no DP’s (but, clearly had more important issues)
