There’s hardly anything to report when we get shut out. Basically, the bottom line is always about the same: our pitching was mediocre and we didn’t score any runs.
Lackey has been pitching really well these days, but yesterday was not one of those days. Two outs into the first, he gave up a single followed by a two-run home run. He gave up another run in the third thanks to a triple-single combination. And he gave up a solo shot with two out in the fifth and another one with one out in the seventh.
After that he was replaced by Britton. One out into the eighth, he was replaced by De La Torre, who gave up a solo shot one out later.
Meanwhile, we were busy doing absolutely nothing. We were shut out and collected a grand total of four hits. So we lost, six-zip.
