Mariners 2 | Diamondbacks 8
I actually attended this one but, time got away, so didn’t recap . . .
I remember that Felix was down 4-0 in the 1st inning before we even took our seats!
It was 90+ degrees and we were there as a ‘work event’ . . .
luckily, another group was there from work and they were in the SHADE, so we sat up with them from the 3rd inning on . . .

Mariners 3 | Diamondbacks 4
ON the MOUND
Monty a bit shaky in the first couple of innings but then settled down . . .
SIX.TWO innings ~ FIVE hits ~ THREE runs ~ TWO earned runs ~ FOUR walks ~ FIVE strikeouts
} Nando and JA (yes, the starter) combined for TWO.ONE innings of scoreless ball
} Unfortunately, Carson struggled mightily in the 10th, a couple of walks, a hit batter and a sac fly gave the Snakes the lead for good
} Nuno came in to get the last TWO outs of the 10th but, bats couldn’t muster up any magic
AT the PLATE
NINE total hits and FIVE walks and 2/4 w/RISP should have yielded more than THREE runs . . .
~ Mark had THREE hits, including TWO doubles, vs his former team
~ Robbie with TWO more hits including a solo shot in the 6th
~ Zu robbed AGAIN at the wall but, he also provided a TWO out RBI single to tie the game in the 9th (and extend his hitting streak to SEVEN games)
IN the FIELD
TWO errors, blech!
* Robbie with a botch of a shovel toss
* Brad with a fielding error in the 2nd that led to the DB’s third run
* NO DP’s turned but THREE turned against them 😦
