Things to Take from This Game
1. Montgomery looks good.
Mike Montgomery pitched a fine 6 innings with just 1 earned run, two more coming in unearned, walking one and striking out seven. For a sixth starter in September it was an encouraging audition for the post-season, or 2017. He even knocked in a run with a single back up the middle, for his first career hit.
2. Russell with some yips.
Hopefully it's just a one-off thing, but Russell sailed throws high, wide-right, and wide-left tonight, for two errors. One of them resulted in two runs. Stay tuned.
3. Soler hit a ball very hard.
Soler's laser-beam 2-run HR and a couple of Heyward doubles down each line were the offensive highlights of the night.
