g114 | at long last, a hush fell over the sea of non-Mariner blue at Safeco Field

Weekday, day game – I SO wish I had chosen this one to attend instead of last night. Not only would I have witnessed an M’s victory on a day where I’d normally be at work – I’d have had the added bonus of “hearing the sound of silence” from Blue Jays fans.


Mariners 9 | Blue Jays 7

Let’s just say Aaron has had a bit of a struggle of late (given up FOURTEEN earned runs in his last TWO starts) . . .
TWO innings ~ FIVE hits ~ SEVEN earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ ZERO strikeouts

} thankfully, at least for now, the bullpen seems to have “found itself” again: Brandon (Win), Charlie, Yoervis, Ollie and Danny (Save) combined for . . .  SEVEN innings ~ SIX hits ~ ZERO earned runs ~ SIX walks ~ SIX strikeouts


~ It took them a couple of days but they found their stroke again but, they did, scoring SIX of their NINE runs in the 5th inning to take the 9-7 lead they would not relinquish . . .
~ They pounded out ELEVEN hits including TWO doubles (Justin & Kendrys), a triple (Nick – breaking an 0-27) and a homer (Humberto). Brad, Kendrys and Dustin all had TWO hits, nearly “everybody” scored and the RBI were spread nicely throughout the line up.

Look ma, no errors!!!
Humberto had a passed ball and the M’s didn’t turn any double-plays but, compared to last night, the field play was sparkling.
