Stats are back! After a brief hiatus, the daily stat posts are back. Here’s three from the M’s 6-2 loss to the ‘Stros.
The number of runs allowed by M’s starter J.A. Happ during yet another solid start. With a few exceptions, Happ has been extremely dependable all year, yet has lost his last three starts. He allowed three runs (two earned) and two walks to go along with the seven hits. The former Blue Jay struck out four.
The number of runs scored by Logan Morrison. LoMo accounted for both of Seattle’s runs while hitting leadoff. He drew a walk to go along with his lone hit. The first baseman struck out twice in four plate appearances.
The number of combined hits by Mark Trumbo, Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager. The quartet combined for three walks and two RBI, but the production from the two-through-five spots in the Seattle order is hardly encouraging.
