OK, we have seen this movie WAY too many times in previous seasons.
Felix does his thing and the offense . . . does not 😦
ON THE MOUND
For the most part, Felix was Felix . . .
(a few too many pitches/walks but, for his second start, it was pretty stellar and definitely should have been rewarded with a win)
SEVEN innings ~ THREE hits ~ ZERO earned runs ~ TWO walks ~ TEN strikeouts
Bully losing its luster . . .
Joel, Steve and Nick combined for THREE innings with Joel giving up the tying run in the 8th and Nick the winning run (solo shot by Crisp) in the 10th
AT THE PLATE
~ only SIX total hits
~ TWO doubles (Kyle and Nori)
~ the only run was from the benefit of an A’s error
~ 0 fer 8 w/RISP ain’t going to get it done
IN THE FIELD
No DP’s or errors (one of each on the other side)
a tale of two series . . .
The M’s scored 21 runs in Texas and won the series.
The M’s scored FOUR runs in the series at home (0-16 w/RISP) and got S W E P T
