This was a fun game to watch and enjoy for 5 plus innings. Then Julio passed the 100 pitch mark, in came Jessie ‘let me get at ’em’ Biddle and we were wiped all round for 6 runs and looked awful being so.
Naturally, now that it didn’t matter, our flaccid bats sprang to life with back to back homers from McCann and Joyce. Kluger smiled benignly, knowing that though Julio matched him into 5 the pitch count showed up as a real factor .. Kluber himself was still pitching to finish the seventh.
We were out of sorts in all ways.
