ON THE MOUND
* Kuma was great! SIX innings ~ TWO hits ~ ZERO walks ~ ONE earned run ~ SEVEN strikeouts
(though he apparently is still dealing with blister/dry skin issue)
* Carter and Oliver combined for THREE innings of ONE hit/ZERO run ball
AT THE PLATE
* Michael Morse hit the FIRST and SECOND 2013 Mariners homers! (one a THREE-run shot)
* The first four in the order tonight (Michael M, Kyle, Kendrys, Michael S) accounted for all SEVEN runs with SEVEN hits and FOUR walks and ZERO strikeouts
IN THE FIELD
* Michael Saunders with TWO stolen bases (Blowers has predicted a 30/30 season for him!)
* Justin with an awesome snare in the 8th (seems his defense is very under-rated)
Quote of the game . . .
“We’re playing good baseball and it gets contagious,” said Morse. “We’re going to play with blinders on and just keep pushing forward.” –Michael Morse (Greg Johns | MLB.com)
