The Cats started slow in their first three games. They were in danger of being swept in their first series since August 2011.
But the fourth game renewed hopes. We took a lead by single runs in the third and the sixth but Las Vegas caught it up in the seventh. In the bottom of the seventh we loaded the bases with one out - Michael Choice came up with a LND grand slam ( leave no doubt). Michael Taylor then immediately followed up with a solo homer. One more out then Stephen Vogt added another homer. So 8-2.
The Cats ended up winning 8-4 - besides the hitting there was an impressive performance for 6 innings by Sonny Gray and a great close by Dan Otero.
Early in the season we have four homers (2 from Taylor) and five pitchers with ERAs over 10. But then we also have three pitchers with 13 total innings of no hit pitching.
