Mariners 6 | Tigers 2

boxscore

ON the MOUND

way to go, Logan!

Gilbert’s first big league venture in to the 7th inning: 6.2IP-4H-1R-1ER-1BB-6SO and the victory!

After Misiewicz and Steckenrider combined for 1.1 hitless/scoreless, Graveman made it interesting in the 9th . . . allowing a run after TWO quick outs: a walk, a single, a HBP and a wild pitch – but, a liner finally ended it

AT the PLATE

THIRTEEN hits!

every batter but two got at least ONE hit (one of those being Haniger, who did not have an official AB – going out after fouling a ball off his knee) and the RBI were sprinkled throughout the lineup

  • TWO homers: Seager and Fraley (in for the injured Haniger)
  • TWO doubles: Bauers and Seager (now tied w/Ichiro for the third most in M’s history – 295)

IN the FIELD

ONE DP (Bauers-Crawford)

ON the MOUND

Super progress for Logan . . .

5IP-2H-1R-1ER-4BB-7SO

too many pitches (105) and too many walks but, gotta love the limited damage and the K’s!!!!!!!

the bullpen was a bit of a hodge-podge . . .

  • a couple of scoreless innings posted by Chargois and Sewald
  • one run allowed by Montero
  • luckily, the M’s had a huge 9th so the THREE runs allowed by Middleton w/o an out in the 9th were moot

AT the PLATE

TEN hits w/RBI up and down the lineup!

  • THREE doubles: Crawford w/TWO, Walton ONE
  • ONE homer – Walton!

Mariners 5 | Angels 12

boxscore

ON the MOUND

Kikuchi: 4.0IP-6H-4R-3ER-0BB-8SO (went out in the 5th after getting hit in the knee)

then the bullpen fell apart – slowly at first (Chargois, Steckenrider, Rios), then Vest totally imploded in the 8th

AT the PLATE

  • the bad = only FIVE total hits
  • the good = Fraley’s second homer of his career was a grand salami!!!!

IN the FIELD

Godoy’s error in the 5th allowed a run
