Not to mention stellar starts (the fifth straight of at least SEVEN innings)
ON THE MOUND
By far, Nate’s best start . . .
(despite having to get an extra out when Robbie lost track of the outs)
SEVEN innings ~ TWO hits ~ ZERO earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ SIX strikeouts
Bully . . .
} Tony walked a couple and gave up the ‘stros only run
} Monty posted a clean sheet 9th including TWO K’s
AT THE PLATE
THIRTEEN hits, only THREE for extra bases but, ONE of those counted for FOUR runs 🙂
~ Robbie collected career hits 999 and 1000 in the 5th with a 2-run single (and a third run scored on a throwing error)
~ then, in the bottom of the 7th, after losing track of the outs in the top of the inning and not completing an easy DP, Robbie redeemed himself in the best, most dramatic way possible . . . GRAND SALAMI!!!!
~ Guti and Kyle had a rough night (both hitless) but,
~ FIVE others had multi-hit games including Marte with a THREE-hit night and THREE runs scored
IN THE FIELD
* Nori with an error
* Robbie with the brain-fart (all things considered, we’ll forgive him 😉 )
