So, Friday’s game was postponed, not due to rain but because of a “soggy field”. Apparently, the tarp was purposely left off the field in an attempt to let it dry out from previous rain but, lack of action because of a misinterpreted forecast led to an “un-playable” field when it got further water-logged by an unexpected downpour.
In the end, it might work out for the Mariners, as all the starters except Chris Young, who has yet to pitch, stay on turn.
ON THE MOUND
We’ve come to expect Felix to dominate ~ especially when facing the A’s . . .
EIGHT.ONE innings pitched ~ SIX hits ~ ONE earned run ~ ONE walk ~ EIGHT strikeouts
} Yay for Fernando!
FIRST save as a Mariner 🙂
AT THE PLATE
A’s starter (Straily) was no slouch either but, M’s bats were able to do j u s t enough . . .
~ only SEVEN hits but, FOUR for extra bases
~ ONE for THREE w/RISP is nothing to write home about but, adding to their major league leading homer total (8) with a couple more JACKS (via Abe and Ack) is at least worth a tweet or two 😉
IN THE FIELD
Some absolutely SPARKLING DEE today . . .
* Smoaky can JUMP!
* Abe to the WALL!
* Condor with the SHOESTRING!
