Mariners 7 | Angels 3

ON the MOUND

Way to hang in, Marco!

After the Halos were “building a picket fence” thru THREE, he ended just shy of a QS: 5.2IP-7H-3R-3ER-1BB

and the BP just keeps keeping on –> Chargois+Misiewicz+Steckenrider+Graveman = 3.1 scoreless

AT the PLATE

  • only EIGHT total hits (but, only TWO players w/o a hit)
  • Crawford and Long each w/doubles
  • fairly key –> SIX walks – FOUR scored
  • the big blow, Haniger’s GRAND SLAM bottom 8th (he just happens to lead the lead in late inning RBI)

IN the FIELD

  • ONE error (Moore)
  • ONE DP (Seager-Moore-France)

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)

Mariners 4 | Tigers 5 (in 10)

boxscore

ON the MOUND

  • such a shame Kikuchi didn’t get the W: 7IP-3H-0R-0ER-3BB-6SO
  • BP of Graveman+Montero+Sewald combined for FIVE runs allowed

the solo shot off Graveman in the 8th was the FIRST run he’s allowed all season

AT the PLATE

  • each team had EIGHT hits
  • M’s had double the doubles (TWO: Murphy, Moore)
  • M’s had double the homers (TWO: Fraley, Moore)

but, the walks (TWO) and singles (TWO) made their 9th inning double hurt and then the single, IBB and throwing error in the 10th downright painful

IN the FIELD

  • TWO DP’s (Seager-Moore;Bauers-Crawford-Bauers)
  • TWO errors (Seager, Moore)

salvage with a flair!

I forgot the game would be on early today and, by the time I turned it on, it was the start of the bottom of the 9th with the score 1-0 ~ honestly, I almost turned it back off (superstition runs deep 😉 ) but, I’m glad I didn’t!

boxscore

ON the MOUND

Way to go, Kikuchi!

Good things happen when you keep it low (groundout-flyout = 11-2) – the SEVEN K’s didn’t hurt either 😉

through SIX he’d only given up a walk, then in the 7th a lead-off walk and a two-out double but, retired the next two batters in order: 7IP-1H-0R-0ER-1BB-7SO

AT the PLATE

Trammell’s homer accounted for the M’s lone run (Seager had a double)

IN the FIELD

  • ONE DP (Crawford-White)
  • couple of awesome catches – by the difference makers in the game: Kikuchi in the 7th and Trammell in the 9th
