Marco back and six runs again = good! bullpen imploding = bad.

Mariners 6 | Athletics 12

boxscore

ON the MOUND

Nice to have Marco’s back: 4.0IP-2H-1R-1ER-1BB-6SO

but, ‘t was all downhill after that ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Santiago, Sewald and Zamora combined to allow NINE runs (SIX just in the 7th) and then Vest added a couple more

AT the PLATE

Normally, ELEVEN hits for SIX runs, including THREE doubles (Haniger, Seager, France) and TWO homers (Trammell and Murphy) is good enough for the victory but, the bullpen wasn’t able to maintain what Marco started

IN the FIELD and ON the BASES

  • ONE DP (Walton-Crawford)
  • TWO SBs (Walton, Crawford)

  • Gilbert’s first QS in the bigs: 6IP-5H-2R-2ER-1BB-5SO

  • but, rest of the pen was as stellar as usual (Vest, Montero, Zamora combined for a scoreless THREE innings)

AT the PLATE

FOUR in the 4th . . .

  • Walton’s first bit league homer was a THREE-run shot (scoring Crawford and Nottingham)
  • Kelenic walked and scored from 1B on Lewis’s double

and then they waited until the 10th . . .

  • France tied it up with an RBI (scoring Mayfield who started the inning at 2B)
  • Murphy had a game-winning sac-fly (scoring France from 3B)

IN the FIELD and ON the BASES
