e.p.i.c ~ youth on display

This game was the M’s 41st comeback victory and their 12th straight vs the A’s
And, it was SO cool to see the youth, the future, getting it done . . .
No matter what happens over the next three games – the experience for them is INVALUABLE.

  • Seager w/a solo shot gave the M’s the lead in the 6th
  • Torrens with and RBI single in the 9th (what we hoped would be an insurance run)

scary moment – error charged to Kelenic when he collides w/Bauers who had the ball in his glove (they are both OK)
