g82 | Monty, Seth, Mark, Joe and Nando = WIN!

Mariners 2 | Athletics 1

road victory

Winning Road Trips are Nice!
Now, her’s to carrying some momentum home and going on a run vs. Tiggers and Halos!

Monty took his run of scoreless innings to TWENTY –  a l m o s t  tied a Mariners rookie record . . .
– before allowing a solo shot to Fuld but, that would be all she wrote for the A’s
– first of his SEVEN career starts that he didn’t go at least SIX – but, he gets his 4th WIN
FIVE.TWO innings ~ SIX hits ~ ONE earned run ~ ONE walk ~ TWO strikeouts

} How spectacular has Mark Lowe been?!?!
Another ONE.ONE innings of scoreless ball w/ONE hit, TWO strikeouts
} Joe with a 1-2-3 inning (helped immensely by his DEE)
} Nando with his SIXTEENTH arrow preserved Mike’s FOURTH victory

Only FIVE total hits but, all it took was ONE single by Seth . . .
~ with Robbie and Nellie aboard (via HBP and the M’s only extra-base hit, a double) and the M’s took the lead for good!

THREE HUGE double-plays . . .
* Kyle to Robbie to LoMo
* Brad to LoMo
* Robbie to LoMo
TWO sparkling catches in the 8th
* Zu pop-up concentration in foul ground
* AJ a sliding grab on a bloop to CF
