Mariners 5 | Royals 6 (in 12)

M’s are now 6-15 in extra innings 😦

Nice to see Brandon go a full SEVEN for the first time this season – and a strong seven, at that . . .
SEVEN innings ~ FOUR hits ~ TWO runs ~ ONE run ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts

The bullpen, as has so often been the case this season, was NO help what-so-ever . . .
} Charlie gave up THREE runs to give the Royals the lead in the 8th
} Tom, Danny, Ollie and Chance combined for 4.1 scoreless innings
} Lucas gave up a walk and an RBI double that would ultimately be the winning run

‘t is a rare thing to have nearly twice as many walks as hits . . .
the M’s had only SIX hits in the entire game  but, THREE were for extra bases – Kendrys and Michael homered, Kyle’s double didn’t come till the 10th.  FOUR of their ELEVEN walks came in extras (TWO intentional to Kendrys and Michael in the 10th)

BOTH teams had TWO errors (throwing errors for Nick and Abraham) AND outfield assists on throws home (Michael). The Royals turned THREE double-plays to the M’s ONE
