A’s only had ONE less strikeout, ONE more double, same number of homers (1) but, SIX more hits and, what really matters, FIVE more runs
ON THE MOUND
Nate’s pitch count early on seemed to doom his outing . . .
though he managed to recover fairly well from the 37-pitch 1st inning, and didn’t give up more than singles until the mistake in the 5th for a TWO-run homer
FIVE innings ~ SEVEN hits ~ FOUR earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts
The bully of: Tony, Vidal and Monty combined for . . .
FIVE innings ~ FOUR hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ FIVE strikeouts
AT THE PLATE
Despite the continuation of a couple streaks, the O was inept for the most part . . .
~ M’s have hit at least ONE homer in the first FIVE games (this time Chris)
~ going back to last season, Robbie has hit i 21-straight games (this time with a double)
~ but, only THREE other hits, all singles
IN THE FIELD
* at least no errors tonight 😉
* no DP’s but, an outfield assist
* TWO DP’s turned against them & some other spectacular leather flashin’ by the A’s
