If Henry was trying to make a good impression on the club . . .
I’d say he succeeded every which way but loose!
- Catching a shutout for Felix
- Tagging a runner out at home (that would have broken a 0-0 tie in favor of the A’s)
- Hitting a GRAND SLAM (his FIRST hit as a Mariner is only the SECOND career grand slam ~his last one was in 2000~ heck, he hadn’t hit a homer of ANY kind since July 2012 – the only one he hit last year) to drive in ALL the runs of the game!
Welcome to Seattle, Henry!!!
ON THE MOUND
Despite throwing 108 pitches and, getting into trouble a few times, it ended as a VERY Happy Felix Day!
SEVEN innings ~ FIVE hits ~ ZERO runs ~ ONE walk ~ EIGHT strikeouts
AT THE PLATE
~ They were only 1-6 w/RISP (but that one was pretty impressive 😉 )
~ All but Brendan and Kyle had as least one hit
~ Michael M had THREE hits, including a double (nice to see him getting back on track!)
IN THE FIELD
THREE double plays (including the outfield assist of Endy to Henry)
