g56 | misery in Minnie . . .

Mariners 4 | Twins 5

What a shame that SO much good in this game (like Aaron’s QS, Jason’s TWO homers, hitless/scoreless relief from Ollie and Carter and Michael’s positive steps) had to be over-shadowed by a gut-wrenching melt-down that ended in, yet ANOTHER, walk-off loss.

Aaron has now posted FOUR quality starts in his last FIVE and definitely kept them in it today, getting out of trouble, much like Kuma yesterday, multiple times . . .
SIX innings ~ FOUR hits ~ 2 runs ~ ONE earned run ~ TWO walks ~ FOUR strikeouts
Unfortunately, that unearned run by his own hand (er, arm), a bad throw home, would loom large in the 9th

} Ollie and Carter combined for TWO scoreless/hitless innings
} The Bartender had nothing today ~ walked the bases loaded, sac fly, 2-rbi triple ended it in Minnie’s favor

~ Things were looking pretty rosy in the first, with back-to-back jacks from Jason and Kyle
~ And, while far from a juggernaut O, M’s would add on via another homer from Jason and an RBI single from Raul.
~ Also great to see Michael hitting the ball hard with a solid single and a ringing double

A couple of errors (Brendon and Aaron) in the 6th ~ Aaron’s allows an unearned run
