Mariners 7 | Astros 2
When I made the choice several years ago to move to the southern most island in Puget Sound, I knew I attending games would be more of a challenge but, I still managed to get to every Opening Day as well as a handful of day games each season since moving. Then came 2020 and that little thing called a global pandemic – my only appearance at T-Mobile Park last season, like many fans, was as a cardboard cutout. I wasn’t able to make it to Opening Day this year so, today was my first time back at the ballpark since the middle of the 2019 season . . .
AND. IT. FELT. SO. GOOD!
ON the MOUND
- Margevicius left with an apparent injury (thankfully, later it was determined to be minor) 4IP-1H-2R-1ER-1BB-3SO
- And then came the ‘pen – what a performance . . .
- Newsome + Sadler + Misiewicz + Montero + Steckenrider = 4IP-0H-0R-0ER-1BB-4SO
AT the PLATE
Once again, the top of the lineup power on full display!
Haniger and France combined for 6RBI (both had doubles, Mitch also a triple, Ty also a homer)
IN the FIELD
the only blemishes –> Seager’s TWO errors and Murphy’s ONE
