ON the MOUND
Very uncharacteristic outing for Felix – so far this season . . .
-he had only walked EIGHT batters total – walked FOUR in this game (including walking the bases loaded in the 6th for only the eighth time in his career he walked THREE batters in an inning)
-he had given up THREE runs at most (once)
SIX innings ~ SEVEN hits ~ FOUR earned runs ~ FOUR walks ~ FIVE strikeouts
Here’s hoping it’s not serious 😦
} Joe pitched a scoreless 7th
} And, probably the best news of the night Danny finally looked more like Lord Farquhar, going TWO full scoreless innings with THREE strikeouts
AT the PLATE
With only FIVE total hits, it was The Brad Show!
~ not ONE but TWO home runs (the first gave the M’s a very brief lead in the 1st, the second tied the game in the 5th)
~ The only other extra base hit was Ack’s double in the 4th but, unfortunately, it was of the ground rule variety so Kyle (who’d been at 1B) could not score.
IN the FIELD
* Robbie being Robbie so smooth ❤
* LoMo with a great snare on the 1B line for the second out of the 6th
* Ack with a nice sliding catch of a sinking liner
