Losing TWO of THREE is never what you WANT and definitely not what the Mariners NEED right now 😦
ON the MOUND
Kuma’s struggles continue (getting tired of the fact that EVERYONE’s struggles seem to continue!)
His strikeouts were there but, the walks are really killing him (he has given up EIGHT now in September – he gave up EIGHT total in May and June, ONE in July and FOUR in August). Today, he gave up THREE and TWO of them scored but, they still had a chance . . .
FOUR.ONE innings ~ SIX hits ~ FOUR earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ EIGHT strikeouts
} Chris S again stellar – TWO outs TWO strikeouts
} Maybe Chris should have gone a bit longer – as Dom, Charlie and Yourvis ALL gave up runs (the killer was the THREE-run jack Yourvis allowed in the 7th)
AT the PLATE
Only SEVEN hits and Michael w/TWO (including a homer) – good to see him picking up where he left off though it’s seeming like it could be too little, too late.
IN the FIELD
ZERO double-plays and Robbie with an error (one away from double-digits for the season)
