ON the MOUND
Vidal got his first M’s start (replacing the traded Happ in the rotation, for now)
Didn’t quite make it through FOUR but, hey, when your first start is in Colorado, can’t complain too much . . . and, he helped his own cause by hitting an RBI single in the 4th 🙂
THREE.TWO innings ~ FIVE hits ~ THREE earned runs ~ TWO walks ~ THREE strikeouts
} Rob, Mayckol and Joe combined for FOUR.ONE innings of ONE run (Mayckol) ball
} Nando tossed a ONE-TWO-THREE 9th! (w/TWO K’s)
AT the PLATE
runs! runs! and more runs!
Every starter but Jesus S got at least one hit (but he reached on a FC and scored a run)
~ Nellie extended his hitting streak to FIFTEEN and his homer streak to FIVE with his THIRTY-FIRST!!!
~ Robbie and Seth both had RBI doubles
~ Robbie and Guti (pinch hit!) both had TWO-run singles
~ Vidal, AJ and Jesus M all had RBI singles
~ Nellie, Robbie, Mark and Brad all with TWO-hit games
~ Brad singled, doubled, stole a base and scored a run
IN the FIELD
* Beautiful running catch by AJ, to rob the Rocks of extra bases in the 5th
* No DP’s but, Joe picked a runner off 1B for the THIRD out of the 8th
