M’s have now lost SEVEN in-a-row
ON the MOUND
Another HappY performance by JA (though the ultimate result was anything but)
He got into a couple of jams but, was able to get a K, a well placed GB, a pop-up or a K (including TWO w/a runner at 3B
Such a shame to waste, YET ANOTHER, solid start . . .
SEVEN innings ~ SIX hits ~ ZERO runs/earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts
Not so happy for Nando . . .
the first (only) run of the game came on a lead-off home run in the 9th
AT the PLATE
Once again, the all too familiar refrain . . . 0’fer SEVEN w/RISP
~ TWO on in the 1st
~ TWO on in the 5th
~ BASES LOADED in the 7th
~ Kyle ROBBED by the Rays CF’er in the 8th who dove and tumbled to snare a line drive
~ AJ with a lead-off triple in the 9th –> stranded 😦
IN the FIELD
* Kyle with a smash liner
* Brad with a nice, quick field and throw of a high chopper to get the runner at 1B for the third out of the 8th
