g51-53 | spittin’ bristles at home vs. the Yanks

Rosy was out of town for two of the three games but, actually attended the third (got to see Tai pitch awesomely and get rewarded with a loss 😦 )

Mariners 2 | Yankees 7 – What’s up with The King?

After mowing ’em down in the first THREE innings, Felix was out of the game before FIVE full after giving up SEVEN runs on SIX hits and FIVE walks. The demise started in the 4th when the Yanks first run scored on a WP and it was down hill from there, including a grand slam in the 5th off the bat of Teixeira

Mariners 3 | Yankees 5 – Way to go, Monty!

Yes, it was a loss but, ‘t wasn’t Monty’s fault!
Great to see a young one cruise through his first major league start – that was the silver lining.
The dark clouds were . . .
~ the bullpen (specifically Nando, Tom and Joe): that surrendered the tying run in the 9th and THREE in the 11th
~ the offense: only managing to muster ONE extra base hit (AJ doubled) and going a paltry 3 fer 17 w/RiSP

Mariners 1| Yankees 3 – Another stellar start by Tai, another inept performance by the “OH”

Each team only managed FIVE hits, trouble was TWO of the Yanks hit left the park (ONE w/ONE on)
Tai’s line is certainly NOT one that deserved a loss . . .
EIGHT innings ~ FIVE hits ~ THREE earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SEVEN strikeouts
