salvage with a flair!

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 πŸ˜‰ ) but, I’m glad I didn’t!

Way to go, Kikuchi!

Good things happen when you keep it low (groundout-flyout = 11-2) – the SEVEN K’s didn’t hurt either πŸ˜‰

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

the Astros only had ONE more total hit (and only ONE for extra base)

the M’s were crazy with the extra-base hits again – but, ‘t wasn’t enough 😦
