g111 | one run woes…

Mariners 1 | Royals 2

Heard on the post game on my way out of Safeco after the game …
Mariners have scored 2 runs or less in 30 of their games.

As much as I love pitching and defense, it has become apparent that offense is just a WEE bit important as well.

Hits and runs were too hard to come by …
Save for Russell’s homer ~ that broke an 0-fer twenty-somethin’ slump ~
 ‘t was the usual anemic O

Walks were a little too easy for the Royals …
But, none of them scored and other than throwing too many pitches, Pauley did quite well.  And, it was good to see Sean have a nice outing as well and David get some work in, even though it wasn’t a save situation.

Despite a few nice plays were made in the field …
the defense wasn’t as sharp overall as last night.
