The first time the M’s have lost two in-a-row since April 19th
First series loss since April 11-13 vs. Texas
figures it would be the (currently) lowly Halos 😦
ON the MOUND
Kuma was hanging in nicely, until the 7th when it all unraveled . . .
a lead-0ff homer, a double, a single and the Halos took the lead and Kuma made an exit
SIX.ONE innings ~ NINE hits ~ FOUR earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ TWO strikeouts
and the pitching definitely went downhill from there . . .
} Joel allowed back-to-back homers, giving the Halos a 6-2 lead
} Mayckol actually was good – ONE.TWO scoreless innings
} Steve, on the other hand, had his second consecutive blown save+loss
AT the PLATE
~ good news: double-digit hits and all the starters but one had at least one hit and the epic 8th inning comeback
~ bad news: only one walk and even though 4/10 w/RISP, soooo many blown opportunities
IN the FIELD
* Leonys’s first E
* nice DP to end the 1st (Kyle to Robbie to Adam)
* Steve C notches a caught stealing
