ON the MOUND
James was awesome – pitching into the 9th and, but for getting hit on the elbow by a come-backer, would likely have recorded only the second complete game by a Mariners pitcher this season. Fingers crossed that it’s just a bruise . . .
EIGHT.ONE innings ~ FIVE hits ~ ONE run ~ ZERO earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts
Bartender walked one but, got the last two outs.
AT the PLATE
Only SEVEN total hits . . .
- none for extra bases
- all scoring in the 4th (2 singles and a sac-fly)
- TWO of the hits were milestones (Mike Freeman’s first and second major league hits and the second resulted in his first major league RBI)
IN the FIELD
Shawn had a fielding error and the M’s didn’t turn a DP (had one turned against them)
