[SWIPE LEFT TO VIEW HIGHLIGHTS]
win! After losing last night and moving to 8.5G back of 1st place in the AL East & clinging to a 2.5G lead in the AL WC, we pull it together tonight and come out on top over the Twins! Not only did we take the first game of the series but we earned our 90TH WIN OF THE SEASON!
Happ was nothing less of amazing tonight as he threw a beauty of a line. His line tonight was: 6IP, 6H, 0R, 0ER, 0BB, and 3Ks. He improves to a season record of (16-6) and lowers his ERA to a 3.75. The rest of the bullpen threw a line of: 3IP, 4H, 2R, 2ER, 0BB, and 2Ks.
The offense exploded tonight after being quiet for 5 straight innings. Thanks to a 3rd deck solo homer from Sanchez in the 6th, the offense exploded the very next inning with 6 runs in the 7th. The six runs came via the bats of: Andujar, Stanton, Didi, McCutchen, and Torres.
Don’t miss game two tomorrow night at 8:10pm E.T. Gray (10-8) looks to face off vs Twins starter TBD. After tonight’s win we gain #90
on the season and improve our AL WC lead to 3 games up vs the Athletics. We currently are now .5 games closer to first for the AL East after tonight and sit at 8G back.
