Running game thread

Posted by Danny O'Neil

No, this isn't an ongoing description of the game, it's a thread about the running game. Something manager John McLaren said he likes to put in motion.

"I like guys running, putting pressure on the defense," McLaren said before the game. "And I like power, too."

That's kind of like Sunday's game. Adrian Beltre provided the power. His solo home run tied the game in the bottom of the second. McLaren got the wheels in motion in the third. After Ichiro singled, he was running on a 3-1 pitch to Jose Lopez. Lopez singled, advancing Ichiro to third and he scored on a sacrifice fly by Jose Vidro.

Miguel Cairo was running in the fourth when Yuniesky Betancourt hit a two-out single, moving Cairo to third, but Ichiro struck out to end the inning.
