Mariners 2 | Angels 1

The Halos absolutely have Felix’s number but…
Iwakuma positively has theirs 🙂

7.1IP + 5H + ZERO R + ZERO BB + 7K = AWESOME!

And speaking of numbers – how ’bout these?!?
Jesus Montero went 2 for 4 today with the two hits ~a homer and a single~ coming off Jeff Weaver bringing his lifetime total vs. Weaver to 5 for 9 with FOUR homers.

Now, Jesus wasn’t without his foibles during the game…
in fact, he was thrown out at home AND at 1B and his manager would comment in the post game that had he gone in ‘straight’ on both of those plays, he would have likely be called safe. Live and learn.

Anyhoo, Jesus and Carlos were the lone, “solo shot” offense today…

While there were no DP’s turned, there was plenty of great DEE…
notably: Seager, Robinson and Smoak – that helped the M’s pitchers hold the Halos to 1-12 w/RISP

The Bartender has made the 9th a bit more interesting lately that most would like but…
he got it done for save number twenty-two!
