Or, at least their second baseman is!
ON THE MOUND
Our first look at Wade Miley ~ quick worker, feast or famine . . .
he gave up THREE hits that scored TWO in the 2nd before retiring ELEVEN straight and then allowing FOUR straight hits in the 6th, including a 3-run homer (to put the Rangers ahead 5-3) and then he struck out the side to end the inning and his outing.
SIX innings ~ SEVEN hits ~ FIVE earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ SEVEN strikeouts
Bully holding that o.oo ERA through THREE games . . .
today it was Nick, Joaquin and Steve combining for THREE innings, ZERO hits and FOUR Ks
AT THE PLATE
Another FOURTEEN hits . . .
~ SIX of those (including Robbie’s second homer of the game!) came in the 9th inning!
~Leonys and Ketel each had THREE hits (including Leonys’s first homer as an M!)
~Robbie another TWO hits (both homers!) and FIVE RBI
~ Leonys and Kyle each w/TWO RBI
~ SIX walks (including THREE by Seth and ONE of the bases-loaded variety by Robbie)
~ Steve the only Mariner starter w/o a hit
ON THE BASES / IN THE FIELD
