g16 | well, at least the homer streak is still alive – SIXTEEN!

Ms 6 | Astros 10

on the MOUND

‘t was the ‘battle of the Wades’ – Miley vs LeBlanc . . . 

  • good news: our Wade outlasted their Wade, despite giving up a lotta extra-base hits, he only gave up TWO runs, struck out FIVE and went .2 innings longer than their Wade
  • bad news: our Wade only made it through 4.2 innings before leaving w/a lat injury
  • in other bad news: the TWO “A” bullpens guys – Armstrong and Alaniz (major league debut) EACH gave up a grand slam . . . yes TWO grand slams in the same game 😦
  • positive note: maybe Gearrin has settled down a bit – second straight game w/o a walk after starting the season rather wildly

at the PLATE

  • good news: THE STREAK is ALIVE! Thanks to Tom Murphy’s homer in the 9th (which would have tied the game had the Astros not gotten that pesky, second grand slam 😉 )
  • other good news: another game w/at least SIX runs (FOURTEEN of their first SIXTEEN games!)
  • still more good news: the hitters continue to have good, patient at-bats – made the other Wade throw 41 pitches in the 1st
  • obvious bad news: it wasn’t enough (the ELEVEN K’s didn’t help much

in the FIELD

  • no double plays but, hey, no errors 🙂
