How FUN was THAT?!? (especially, in person!)
ON the MOUND
Mr Happ just continues to put up quality start after quality start (M’s have won FIVE of JA’s SEVEN starts) . . .
He threw a lot of pitches in the 2nd (when he gave up the Sox only run) but, hung in there
SEVEN innings ~ FIVE hits ~ ONE earned run ~ ONE walk ~ THREE strikeouts
} The Bartender appears to be back in business ! Tom threw TWO scoreless with a strikeout
AT the PLATE
Only FIVE total hits . . .
~ the first hit came in the form of a Robbie double in the 1st
~ the second hit didn’t come until 6th when Seth tied it up with a solo shot
~ the second run was the fifth hit and didn’t come until TWO outs in the 9th with Brad at 2B
but – that was all they needed!
IN the FIELD
* Nifty play of a flair that Brad caught on the fly and a l m o s t got the DP but, the ball hit the runner
* Nellie had a nice catch at the wall in RF
* Justin took a not-so-great route to a ball in LCF and consequently an RBI triple ensues in the 2nd
* LoMo continues to impress at 1B he made a great pick of a low throw from Brad in the 5th
* nice DP to get Big Papi in the 6th
