M’s jumped out to an early lead and added on significantly. The Rays chipped away and got close but, the home town nine hung in there 🙂
ON the MOUND
Wade was j u s t shy of a QS . . .
SIX innings ~ FOUR hits ~ FOUR earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts
The Bully was its usual stellar self . . .
with Nick, Vidal, Joel and Steve combining for THREE scoreless innings (and, Steve recorded his ELEVENTH save – a FOUR out variety!)
AT the PLATE
~ Every starter but one (Luis) had at least ONE hit
~ Nice to see another couple homers (Guti’s first, DeaHo’s fifth)
~ and even better that there were BASERUNNERS when they occurred
IN the FIELD
and they say Nellie can’t play the field . . .
