Mariners 3 | Rangers 1

confidence

Tonight, Tai got some of both tonight!

ON the MOUND
Way to go, Taijuan!
That’s the young gun we know and love: power, command and control, not to mention learning to work out of trouble . . .
SEVEN innings ~ SIX hits ~ ONE run ~ ZERO earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ FIVE strikeouts

Supportive ‘pen . . .
} Charlie and Carson combine for a scoreless “hold” in the 8th
} Nando does his Nando thing . . . runners get on but, they don’t get in and the arrow flies somewhere over Arlington for his FIFTH save, preserving Taijuan’s FIRST victory

AT the PLATE
Not a whole lotta O but, THANKFULLY, it wasn’t needed tonight
~ Only FIVE hits
~ NONE for extra-bases but, advantage taken of some miscues
~ Good on Justin . . . TWO walks and TWO runs scored and his first SB of the season!
~ TWO for SEVEN w/RISP (which doesn’t sound that great but, it’s a BIG improvement compared to lately 😉 )

IN the FIELD
* Chalk up another error 😦 (Brad)
* But, also a DP turne (Kyle-Willie)

tweets of the game . . .

Indeed it was!
The M’s found a WIN at the end of the rainbow (who needs gold, anyway?!?)
