ON the MOUND
Yes indeed, that’s just what the ship’s doctor ordered!
Felix did what he could (and more!) to get the M’s back on the right course. His first wild pitch of the season came w/Trout at the plate and while it sent Aybar to 2B, he was left stranded as Felix’s next pitch sent both Mr. Trout and Mr. Aybar back to the dugout 🙂
The homer Felix allowed to Joyce in the 7th was the first long ball he’d allowed since the one to Trout on Opening Day and, it would be the only run he allowed in this game. Felix was Felix, and then some, earning some lofty spots in the record books . . .
SEVEN innings ~ SIX hits ~ ONE earned run ~ ONE walk ~ EIGHT strikeouts
the bully . . . .
} Carson was great (as per usual) allowed a hit but also THREE ground outs in the 8th
} Nando was an adventure (as per usual) allowed a solo shot to let the Halos within ONE and then a TWO out walk but, a poor decision by the pinch runner (Cowgill) to run made him dead meat, Nando a saviour (via Zu) and the M’s victors.
AT the PLATE
Well, FOUR hits typically isn’t anything to write home about but . . .
~ when THREE of them are homers it’s a bit brighter (Cruz and LoMo, of course, and Seth!) 🙂
~ Chris Taylor was called up (to replace AJ who went to the DL) and started at SS – couple of K’s
IN the FIELD
Couple of su-wEET DP’s . . .
* Robbie slid and tossed to Chris and Chris threw to LoMo
* Nellie caught a fly ball and made a strong throw that LoMo dug out to double up Trout
