The good news is. . .
they weren’t swept in either series (and TWO of the losses were by ONE run)
The bad news is . . .
they were only able to salvage one win in each series (and BOTH were by ONE run)
To focus on the positive vs Tampa Bay . . .
- Jarred blasted his first pinch hit homer
- Sewald hadn’t allowed a base runner in SIX innings (till this series)
- Julio bagged his first big league triple
- Adam and Jesse each recorded their homers as Mariners
- Most promising of all – with friends and family in attendance at T-Mobile Park, George Kirby’s ML debut on Mother’s Day was a thing of beauty: 6IP-4H-0ER-0BB-7K
The only game worth noting in the Phillies series was the second one where . . .
- Robbie retired the first TWELVE batters he faced and got the win: 5.2IP-2H-2ER-2BB-10K
- the bats got going with ELEVEN hits; multi-hit games from Adam, Ty Eugenio and Luis
And, in other Seattle sports news . . .
Congrats to the Sounders!!!
And, THIS will be an interesting start to the Seahawks season . . .
I was trying to focus on the positive but, have to mention some really disappointing news re: Mitch 😦
Now it’s off to NY, Toronto and Boston – time to set the road on fire!!!
