Mariners 6 | Rangers 7

‘t was looking pretty good in the bottom of the second…
when the M’s took a 4-1 lead via three singles (Adam, Brendan and Ichiro) a walk (Saunders) and a double (Seager).  But, the Rangers came roaring right back to tie it up with THREE solo homers in the top of the third.  They would put up another three-spot in the top of the fourth via three singles and a walk to take a 7-4 lead.  Mike Carp hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth to get the M’s to within one – but that would be the final score.

Not sure Anthony Vasquez had a chance in this one…
he looked pretty good the first couple of innings but, you just can’t keep these guys down for long (amazing that the M’s were able to shut them out last night).  Hopefully, Anthony learned some valuable lessons from his short outing.

As for the bullpen…
Jeff wasn’t too sharp, but gave them some innings.  Then Cesar, Chance and Jamey combined for 3.2 scoreless … not too shabby.

Trayvon made an AWESOME catch, going into the stands in LF…

Apparently, going into this game, the M’s have NEVER gotten a hit off Neftali Feliz…
And, they still don’t.

As an aside…
It was kinda cool when the M’s fans cheered every time there were fireworks going off next door at Century Link Field – they knew it meant goooooooooooooooallll!!!!!!

After the M’s game, I went across the street to cheer for the men in rave green.  Apparently, they didn’t need my cheering, as I got there just as the second half was starting and before I got to my seat there was another goal (3-nil Sounders at that point – which would end up being the final).
