he threw a LOT of pitches (90) for FIVE innings
SIX hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ FIVE strikeouts
Nice bully again tonight ~ including TWO M’s debuts . . .
Vincent (W), Peralta and Zych combine for FOUR scoreless (only ONE hit and FOUR K’s)
AT THE PLATE
ELEVEN hits, SEVEN for extra bases . . .
~ Robbie with his second homer in as many games, Nellie and Seth with their first homers of the season, and Luis with the first of his homer of his career (in his M’s debut)
~ Nori, Nellie and Seth all with TWO hits
~ Ketel, Guti and Dae-Ho the only batters without a hit
~ Chris the Catcher with a single, walk, HBP, ONE run and ONE RBI
IN THE FIELD
* Ketel with another error 😦
* Robbie-to-Ketel-to-Luis to get Prince for the game-ending DP 🙂
silliness of the game . . .
So, in the 8th, after giving up TWO homers and TWO doubles (and immediately after a visit to the mound from his skipper) our old friend Tom plunked our new friend Chris. Chris ended up crossing home plate later in the inning. Tom ended up with an early, mandated trip to the clubhouse.
