ON the MOUND
Roenis bookended his start by allowing homers on the first pitch of the game and his last pitch of the game . . .
but, everything in-between was pretty great!
at one point retired TWELVE in-a-row 🙂
SEVEN innings ~ FOUR hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ TEN strikeouts
AT the PLATE
Only a total of EIGHT hits but, also SEVEN walks . . .
~ SIXTEEN opportunities w/RISP (OK – only came through THRICE but, ‘t was enough!)
~ it all started with LoMo being called SAFE w/ONE in the 1st out on a call that was reviewed and he would end up scoring the first run on a bases loaded walk
~ despite only ONE hit, Mark posted THREE RBI
~ good to see Kyle, Nellie (both had been suffering from food poisoning) and Robbie (out yesterday with ‘cough-cough’ a sore back) wasting no time contributing
IN the FIELD
No DP’s turned (though one turned against them)
‘stros have some great defensive players but, M’s were able to take advantage of a error
