Mariners 6 | Rangers 3

Seems like forever since I attended a win (I believe it was back on Supreme Court night) so, it was good leave the field with a little spring in my step for a change.
‘Kuma was solid… 
He continues to make a pretty strong case for the starting Ro next season.
He gave up 8 hits but only 3 runs and struck out 4 in his full 7 innings of work to earn his 7th win.
bullpen back to form…
Pryor and Wilhelmsen each gave up a hit that went for not and The Bartender earned his 28th save.

‘t was a first for the SS…
Carlos Triunfel made his first major league start – he got a hit, scored a run and collected his first MBL RBI (solid RBI double). He also made some nice plays in the field (including being a part of THREE double-plays).
Nice to see some POWER tonight…
THREE doubles (Smoak, Wells, Triunfel)
ONE triple (Guit)
ONE homer (Miggy with a 2-run insurance shot in the 8th)

Ackley left the game with a stiff neck …
Seager moved to 2B and Liddi came in at 3B

M’s have played the Rangers tough this season…
current season series record is 8-9 AND the M’s have out-scored the R’s 84-69
Let’s tie the season series tomorrow and win it Sunday 🙂
