g106 | Kuma and the solo shots!!!

Mariners 3 | Red Sox 1

solo shots

~ bad news: only FOUR hits
~ good news: THREE of them were homers

ON the MOUND
that’s Kuma “the Bear” we know and love!
SEVEN.ONE innings ~ FIVE hits ~ ZERO earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ SEVEN strikeouts

then Drew gave us all heart attacks when he relieved Kuma in the 7th . . .
first batter he faces singles, second pops up and the third L  O  N  G  fly out to Nori at the wall – whew!!!

Then Edwin made it interesting in the 9th . . .
he actually, shock, allowed a run – but, got it done in the end for his SECOND save in as many chances, preserving the well-deserved W for Kuma!

AT the PLATE
As mentioned at the top, only FOUR hits but THREE of them were homers . . .
All solo shots: Nellie, Zu and Adam
Anyone noticed Zu’s OPS??  1.190 (yeah, I know it’s a small sample size but, jiminey!!)

IN the FIELD
A couple of nice/timely catches in the OF . . . 
Seth with a basket catch at the wall in the 4th and Nori with a catch of a scary fly ball (w/two runners on) in the 8th

No DP’s turned by the M’s (one turned against them)

Robbie’s sick play to end the game
