Sorry, Rosy was OoO for this series . . .
So, they win the game they scored TWO and lose all the others in which they scored THREE – go figure.
ON the MOUND
g1: James didn’t even make it through FIVE . . .
suffering a finger injury that put him on the 15-day DL
g2: Tai had the BEST outing of his big league career . . .
EIGHT innings ~ TWO hits (both singles) ~ ZERO runs ~ ZERO walks ~ EIGHT strikeouts
g3: Roenis aka: Mr. Quality Start . . .
till this game only ONE of his starts weren’t in that category – make it TWO
g:4 JA had been chalking up the QS’s as well . . .
not counting the rain-shortened start, Mr. Happ had posted only TWO other starts that weren’t quality – make it THREE 😦
the bullpen was a mixed bag in the series . . .
doing a great job in the first THREE games (including Nando’s 14th save) but then falling apart in the last game (especially Carson, Dom and Joe – but, a lot of that may be over-use). One guy who as been super stellar is Mark Lowe – amazing that he seems to have found himself again after all these years!
AT the PLATE
A total of FOUR homers in the FOUR games (including Seth’s that accounted for both runs in the only win) but, overall the OH was VERY disappointing.
~ Only THIRTEEN total hits in the first TWO games
~ ELEVEN hits and FOUR walks in game three that should have yielded much more than THREE runs
~ The real sad sac was game four in which they only managed FIVE hits in TWELVE innings! argh!!
IN the FIELD
FIVE total DP’s in the series (including THREE in the extra inning game)
* Ack with a NICE catch and slide into the LF wall in the second game
* Kyle with a LONG run to snare a foul ball at the short wall in the second game and a charging play on a bunt in the third one
