Great series with great pitching and j u s t enough offense – until tonight . . .
ON the MOUND
Welcome to Seattle, Ariel!
Newly acquired (from the O’s for Wade Miley) Ariel Miranda made his first big leagues start (not an easy task vs. the BoSox) and he showed a lot of promise . . .
SIX innings ~ EIGHT hits ~ TWO runs ~ ONE walk ~ FIVE strikeouts
Bully . . .
the combination of Drew, Vidal, Tom and Blake combined for FOUR scoreless innings but, then, in the 11th, Cody allowed a lead-off single, a sac-bunt and an RBI single that proved to be the winning run
AT the PLATE
Kinda crazy – the M’s had only SIX hits . .
- only ONE for extra-bases ~ Shawn O’Malley’s FIRST major league home run
- NINE walks (more walks than hits? should have yielded more runs)
- THIRTEEN K’s – yikes!
IN the FIELD
* Nice catch at the wall by Guillermo
* THREE double-plays (including one of the unassisted variety by Dae-Ho!)
