g145-147 | series win!

Mariners 10 | Angels 1

Mariners 3 | Angels 4

Mariners 3 | Angels 1

I attended the last game – a fun one!

Kuma was awesome . . .
he was only able to make it through SIX innings but, FOUR hits ~ ONE earned run ~ ZERO walks ~ NINE strikeouts

The bullpen has been out of this world in September and meeting the Halos was no different . . . .
ZERO runs allowed in this series!

The unlikely hero of the night was Jesus . . .
THREE-run bomb in the 4th – and that would be that 🙂

Plus, a couple of extras . . .
~ some fireworks between Weaver and Seager
~ AND Hyphen working some TV 🙂

g143 | everybody contributes!

Mariners 7 | Rockies 2

everybody contributes

ON the MOUND
Roenis was ON FIRE to start . . .
– He retired NINE in-a-row to start the game (w/SEVEN strikeouts – all swinging!!)
– He allowed his first hit in the 4th, a single, followed by a DP and a line out
– He allowed his first walk n the 5th but, got a strikeout and a couple of ground outs
But, then came the 6th, where Roenis seemed to not recover from an error . . .
– the first batter reached on the error
– the second and third walked
– a ground out scored a run and that would be it, still a pretty decent outing . . .
FIVE.ONE innings ~ ONE hit ~ TWO runs ~ ZERO earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ EIGHT strikeouts

Stellar job from the ‘pen . . .
Logan, Dave, Danny, Carson and Joe combined for:
THREE.TWO scoreless innings ~ THREE hits ~ ZERO walks  ~ SIX strikeouts

AT the PLATE
Only NINE total hits but, FIVE for extra bases . . .
~ Robbie, Jesus M, Guti all with solo shots
~ Nellie with a TWO-run homer (his career high 41st!)
~ Kyle with a double and TWO runs scored
~ John with a sac bunt squeeze that scored Sean (John’s first career RBI!)

IN the FIELD
* a nice Robbie ‘glove-flip DP
* Sean with a nice diving grab in the OF
* Roenis’ error

Mariners 11 | Athletics 8

comeback

ON the MOUND
Well, not exactly what you drew up for Edgar . . .
ONE.ONE innings ~ SIX hits ~ FIVE runs ~ FOUR earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ ZERO strikeouts

the pen (and when I say ‘pen, I’m talking nearly the ENTIRE bullpen) was stellar then bad then so-so, then stellar again . . .
} Jose went ONE.TWO hitless, scoreless (and ultimately would get the WIN)
} Tony and Mayckol combined for THREE innings and THREE runs
} Logan, Vidal, Carson and Tom combined for THREE innings w/FOUR hits and ZERO runs (Tom earned his NINTH save)

AT the PLATE
THIRTEEN hits, SIX for extra-bases . . . not too shabby!
~ Kyle, Stefen and LoMo all with multi-hit, multi-RBI nights
~ Ketel, Kyle, Stefen all with multi-hit. multi-run nights
~ Brad with only ONE hit but THREE RBI

IN the FIELD
* John with a nice caught stealing of Burns – TWICE!
* TWO dp’s turned

g134 | Houston, no problem!

Mariners 8 | Astros 3

win

ON the MOUND
Quality start for Tai . . . 
SIX.TWO innings ~ FIVE hits ~ THREE runs/earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ THREE strikeouts

‘pen work . . . 
} Carson struck out the only man he faced to end the 7th
} Logan allowed a double and a pop up to the only TWO batters he faced
} Bartender to the rescue! A fly out and a strike out to end the 8th and then in the 9th . . .
a lead-off double but then 1-2-3 for his EIGHTH save (and, via the fluke of the “wins calculation”, Carson, facing ONE batter gets his SECOND win)

AT the PLATE
THIRTEEN hits should bode well and, it DID!
~ THREE doubles (Ketel, Guti, Kyle)
~ ONE homer (LoMo with a THREE-run shot in the 9th!)
~ And, hey look! The new, local kid (Shawn, just called up) with THREE hits, ONE walk, ONE run and TWO RBI!

IN the FIELD
* Guti with a rare (his first) error
* DP (Robbie to Ketel to Mark)
* Tai with a pick-off

Not Roenis’ best effort (too many balls and too many pitches) but, he hung in  . . .
FIVE.ONE innings ~ FIVE hits ~ FOUR runs ~ FOUR walks ~ FOUR strikeouts

on the other hand, NICE bullpen tonight!
Mayckol gave up a couple of hits and a run but, the rest of the pen (Logan, Carson and Tom) combined for TWO hits ZERO runs and ZERO walks with FOUR strikeouts. Bartender earned his SEVENTH save and Logan is FIRST win (since 2009)

~ Guti on fire! besides the homer he walked and scored in Brad’s single and singled and scored on Mark’s homer

IN the FIELD

* No DPs turned but, TWO turned agains them
