SEVEN, count ’em SEVEN home total home runs (and they say Safeco’s a pitcher’s park!)
Rangers racked up FOUR to the M’s three but, when all was said and done, the Mariners emerged victorious. Having received a nice quality start from Kuma and TWO big blasts from DHL 🙂
ON the MOUND
Kuma was far from dominant but, was just good enough to get the job done . . .
Yes, the Rangers hit THREE homers against him but, all solo shots
SEVEN innings ~ SEVEN hits ~ THREE earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ THREE strikeouts
Nick and Steve each allowed ONE run but, thanks to some wackiness in the 8th, no harm, no foul 😉 and Kuma earned his FIFTH victory, Steve his FOURTEENTH save
AT the PLATE
Only SEVEN total hits: FOUR singles, THREE homers (TWO by Dae-Ho, ONE by Kyle)
IN the FIELD
No highlight reel defense this game but, just good to know our CF is back!
