SIX.ONE innings ~ FIVE hits ~ THREE earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ ELEVEN strikeouts

the bullpen didn’t allow a run . . .
} Nuno didn’t recored an out (allowed a walk and a run)
} Nando, Mark, Charlie and Carson combined for a 2-hit, no run, no walk FOUR.TWO innings with Carson earning his FIFTH save, preserving Tai’s FIFTH victory

AT the PLATE
~ The first TWO runs came via TWO bases-loaded walks in the 2nd
~ Every starter but Zu had ONE hit (FIVE total walks) and THREE of them left the yard (all solo shots) . . .

~ The other run came off the bat of Robbie – an RBI single
~ LoMo with his FIFTH steal 🙂

IN the FIELD
* Brad had a couple of really nice spinning plays but, also had a scary moment when he nearly went into the stands to catch a foul ball but, instead crashed into the short wall (gonna have some sore ribs) and missed the ball due to fan interference (fan was escorted out)
* No DP’s on either side
