looking at the K’s and BB’s – you’d think the outcome was different . . .

  • M’s only struck out THREE times and walked SIX
  • Tribe struck out ELEVEN times and walked ZERO

ON the MOUND

  • Gilbert’s debut, not too bad –> 4.0IP-5H-4R-4ER-0BB-5SO (pitches 71/52)
  • bullpen back to form and then some –> 5IP-1H-0R-0ER-0BB-6SO (Steckenrider, Dugger, Swanson)

AT the PLATE

  • NO hits until JP’s single in the 8th – and he would go on to score on Dylan’s homer
  • unfortunately, that would be that, they loaded to bases (via THREE walks after TWO outs) but couldn’t score more
  • Kelenic’s debut: fly out, strikeout, groundout, fly out

IN the FIELD
