Mariners 15 | Padres 8
No, that’s not a typo.
It wasn’t the Chargers vs. the Seahawks (although the weather certainly seemed more like November than May)
In his previous FOUR starts, Cliff gave up a total of SEVEN earned runs, yet had only ONE win.
Tonight, he notched his SECOND win, despite giving up SEVEN earned runs.
On their last home stand, the Mariners scored a total of TWENTY runs in NINE games.
Tonight, they recorded FIFTEEN hits (including 3 doubles & 3 home runs ) scoring FIFTEEN runs.
Coming into this game, both the Padres and Mariners had had shown GREAT pitching and ABYSMAL hitting. One would have expected a two hour, 2-1 affair.
Tonight – the M’s didn’t pitch well, the Padres pitched horribly, the M’s absolutely crushed the ball and the Pads scored plenty enough to win about 99% of the time.
In their last TEN games, the Mariners have played SEVEN one-run games.
Tonight, they won by SEVEN runs.
Glad I was there.
I like baseball.
