ON the MOUND
Tai was not very efficient (110 pitches) but pretty effective . . .
He had a shaky start, giving up THREE of his FIVE hits, the walk and BOTH runs in the 1st – then Tai settled down, at one point retiring ELEVEN in-a-row
SIX innings ~ FIVE hits ~ TWO runs/earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts
The first half of the bully, unfortunately, was NOT as effective . . .
}Tom gave up a TWO-run homer in the 7th and Joe a solo shot (to tie it) in the 8th
The second half of the bully ~ yowsa, back to form!
} Carson (9th) and Nando (10th) combined for TWO.TWO hitless, scoreless innings – Nando with the win
AT the PLATE
THIRTEEN total hits ~ FOUR for extra-bases . . .
~ Nellie didn’t waste any time extending his hitting streak to TWENTY-ONE w/his 34th homer in the 1st
~ Mark added a 3-run TRUM-BOMB in the same inning to give the M’s the 4-2 lead
~ Robbie and Seth combined to go 5/8 each with a run scored and Robbie also walked
~ Brad had a THREE hit night with a walk and a run scored
~ Kyle with a sac-fly that scored Brad in the 2nd
~ and AJ was the hero of the night with the game-winning RBI in the 10th scoring LoMo
IN the FIELD
No DP’s for either side, the O’s committed TWO errors (but neither resulted in a run)
