g89 | twelve swinging strikeouts and seven runs of support!

Mariners 7 | Rangers 0

and a partridge in a pear tree 🙂

Yu Darvish now has a 9.00 ERA in three starts against the Seattle Mariners.
He has a 3.09 ERA vs. the rest of the major leagues.

Go figure – that’s baseball.

Man, I wish I’d made a different decision re: attending the game tonight ;-(

But, so glad to see a game like this (even if it was only on TV) … they needed it.

  • They needed their ACE to be their ACE against one of the top teams in the league.
  • They needed to give him the support he so richly deserves.
  • They needed to show how their home can be a house of horrors … for visitors.
  • They needed to prove that their home can give them comfort and confidence credibility.

And so, all of the above (and more) was accomplished tonight.
Felix with a complete game shutout – 12 strikes (all swinging!)
The offense with 8 hits (2 doubles and a homer), 5 walks and 7 runs

Rubber match tomorrow (for this season AND the season series so far)
