I forgot the game would be on early today and, by the time I turned it on, it was the start of the bottom of the 9th with the score 1-0 ~ honestly, I almost turned it back off (superstition runs deep 😉 ) but, I’m glad I didn’t!
Mariners 1 | Astros 0
ON the MOUND
Way to go, Kikuchi!
Good things happen when you keep it low (groundout-flyout = 11-2) – the SEVEN K’s didn’t hurt either 😉
through SIX he’d only given up a walk, then in the 7th a lead-off walk and a two-out double but, retired the next two batters in order: 7IP-1H-0R-0ER-1BB-7SO
AT the PLATE
Trammell’s homer accounted for the M’s lone run (Seager had a double)
IN the FIELD
- ONE DP (Crawford-White)
- couple of awesome catches – by the difference makers in the game: Kikuchi in the 7th and Trammell in the 9th
