g65 | diabolical … not so much

Mariners 1 | Tigers 8

I didn’t see much of the game.  I left before things got too ugly to attend the Sounders FC vs. the Vancouver White Caps at the xBox Pitch.  Unfortunately, my Seattle Sports day went from bad to worse – Vancouver led most of the game after an early goal but, the Sounders tied and then took the lead on two late goals.  A couple of minutes later, Vancouver scored again.  Final result 2-2 draw.

Maybe it was just as well I missed most of the M’s game…
It was the worst start of Michael’s career so far, the bully lost it’s mini 6-inning scoreless streak (Wright and Ray each gave up a run) and the offense mustered only 5 hits and 2 walks vs. a guy who had given up 19 runs in his past 3 starts.

The one positive – Ichiro was 2 for 4 with a triple and a run scored.

Here’s hoping Michael will learn from this bit of adversity and that tomorrow brings better results for Felix and the bats…
