g69 | oh, those one-run losses . . .

soooo, close . . . 

this close

Mariners 1 | Red Sox 2

ON the MOUND
Good news: Tai’s first ever start in Fenway was great while it lasted
Bad news: lifted after only 88 pitches when the foot strain flared up again
FIVE innings ~ SIX hits ~ ZERO runs ~ ONE walk ~ THREE strikeouts

Bully . . .
} Vidal gave up a couple of singles and the tying run in the 6th
} Edwin gave up the ultimate winning run (solo shot to Betts) in the 7th
} Nick allowed a hit and a walk but, no runs – all too little, too late 😦

AT the PLATE
~ Only EIGHT total hits (and Guti’s solo shot the only one for extra-bases)
~ ZERO walks and TEN strikeouts – typically not a recipe for success
~ tip o’ the cap to Mr. Price

IN the FIELD
* a nice DP to get Ortiz w/TWO on to end the 3rd
* Nice throw by Chris to nail Betts (for the first time this season
* Ketel with a low liner snare with the bases loaded to end the 6th
