g44 | Just call him Roenis “QS” Elias . . .

Mariners 4 | Rays 1

quality starts

Roenis just keeps racking up the QS’s (his 5th in-a-row)
‘t wasn’t easy – he had runners on base in every inning except the 1st but, worked out of it and hung in . . .
SIX innings ~ SIX hits ~ ONE earned run ~ THREE walks ~ SIX strikeouts

} Mark and Carson doing their thing: each with a scoreless inning (7th and 8th respectively)
} Nando got the first TWO batters with just THREE pitches (the second one was a bit interesting as the batter’s bat shattered and then Nando couldn’t immediately find the ball – it was at his feet – but found it and threw it just in time to get the runner at 1B). Then, a base hit but, no worries! a  L O N G  fly ball to LF that Brad put away allowing Nando to draw his THIRTEENTH arrow and preserve Roenis’s second victory!

Some REALLY good signs for the offense tonight . . . 
~ Robbie coming out of it? TWO RBI singles tonight!
~ Kyle and Seth each recorded their NINTH doubles of the season (for Seth that meant TWO!)
~ baby steps re: the hits w/RISP (3 for 11 tonight)
~ BE.AU.TI.FUL at bat by Zu in the 9th:  his SIXTH homer came on the NINTH pitch (after starting out 0-2). He NEEDED that – the great AB even more than the home run.

* Brad proving serviceable in LF: several put outs tonight as well as a nice throw on a double to keep the runner from scoring
* Kyle with a super DIVING catch to rob the Rays of a base hit with TWO out ONE on in the 8th
