Welcome back to the bigs, ZU!!!
ON the MOUND
After cruising through THREE, James couldn’t quit get through SIX . . .
FIVE.TWO innings ~ NINE hits ~ FOUR runs (3 earned) ~ TWO walks ~ TWO strikeouts
- The Bartender (fresh up from Tacoma) got the final out of the 6th
- Nathan went THREE, allowed a TWO-run homer in the but, was credited with the save and preserved James’ second victory and the M’s series win!
AT the PLATE
Where do I start?!?
SIXTEEN hits (including NINE for extra-bases) and FIVE home runs (including TWO from ZU in his 2016 debut!!!!)
- So great to see ZU debut in a big way – hopefully the start of a very good thing!
- Nellie, Adam and Seth (third in a row!) had the other homers
- Kyle and Adam both had TWO doubles (and Adam was a triple short of the cycle!)
- Nice to see more walks (SEVEN) than strikeouts (FIVE)
- How ’bout Shawn?!? TWO hit, TWO runs, TWO walks
- Only ONE starter (Dae-Ho) was without a run scored
- Only ONE starter (Leonys) was without a hit (though he walked twice and scored once)
IN the FIELD
- Shawn with an error
- ONE dp turned (Kyle-Robbie-Adam)
