that certainly didn’t go as planned or desired . . .
the first TWO games they were just out pitched (Karns and Walker w/season-worst starts) and out hit . . .
but, the third game was clearly a case of “where’s the DEE?” . . .
Kuma allowed a single to the first batter of the game and then proceeded to retire TWELVE straight. Unfortunately, he had to throw many extra pitches in the Rangers 5th where TWO of their THREE runs were UNearned (Sardinas and Romero each recorded key errors as well as UNrecorded faux paux that very likely made the difference between Kuma going NINE and getting a win and only going SEVEN and being tagged with the loss (Luis should have turned a DP to end the inning and later booted a ball, Romero also committed an error AND didn’t come up firing after fielding a fly ball, allowing the runner on 3B to score). Hurry back Ketel and Leonys!
