ON the MOUND
Definitely not Wade’s best effort . . .
He was able to work around lead-off walks in the first TWO innings and posted a clean sheet in the 3rd but, then came a rough 4th
FIVE innings ~ FOUR hits ~ THREE earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ SIX strikeouts
Wade wasn’t alone in a bad day . . .
Steve gave up THREE runs without recording ONE out (though TWO were inherited runners that Vidal allowed to score). Nick had a clean 9th but, too little, too late.
AT the PLATE
* BAD news: only TWO of the NINE total hits were for extra bases
* GOOD news: they were from the M&M guys – nice to see Leonys (homer) and Ketel (double) picking up where they left off before their DL stints
* CRAZY news: Robbie getting thrown out at 2B during a TWO out rally to end the game
tweets of the game . . .
Sadly, though baseball provided a bit of a distraction, there was still the horrific news of the Orlando massacre 😦
Honor and peace to those who lost their lives, comfort and strength to those who lost loved ones, thoughtful guidence to our leaders . . .
