some do well, some do not . . .

bull pen

ON the MOUND
We knew going into the game, it would be a bullpen day . . .
} Tony Zych started things off well, going TWO.TWO giving up THREE hits but NO runs or walks and FOUR strikeouts
} Mayckol Guaipe did not fair so well , giving up TWO runs on THREE hits and ONE walk
} Logan Kensing gave up ONE run and was only able to retire ONE batter
} Ron Rasmussen retired the only batter he faced via a strikeout
} JC Ramirez had the roughest night of all allowing THREE runs on TWO hits and a walk
} Joe and Dave each posted a scoreless inning
} Danny lasted TWO full and allowed ONE run on THREE hits and posted THREE strikeouts

AT the PLATE
TWELVE total hits but, only TWO for extra-bases . . .
~ both homers as Kyle (26th) and Nellie (44th) go back-to-back in the 5th (both career highs!)
~ Ketel had TWO hits and Jesus S had THREE! (first career THREE hit game)

IN the FIELD
not a terrific night in the field FIVE total errors (FOUR by the ‘stros)

rally jig

Shawn O’Mallye with the Rally Jig!!!

ON the MOUND
Vidal threw a few too many pitches (and a couple in the wrong spot) but, kept ’em in it . . .
FIVE innings ~ SIX hits ~ THREE earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ FIVE strikeouts

bully, bully!
JC, Carson and Tom combined for FOUR innings ~ TWO hits ~ ONE run ~ TWO walks ~ FOUR strikeouts
(and Tom earned his second win – recording FIVE outs)

AT the PLATE

~ Nellie and Robbie both with sac-flies in the 1st
~ Robbie with his TWENTIETH homer (a two-run shot )to tie the game at 4 in the 6th)
~ Shawn with a two-run single (w/the bases loaded) to give the M’s the lead in the 8th

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

g157 | um, repeat yesterday’s post title :-(

Mariners 2 | Blue Jays 10

ON the MOUND
Felix definitely not being Felix . . . 
including a fielding error, couple of walks in ONE inning (one of the bases loaded variety) and an inning so bad he was replaced before it was over . . .
FOUR.TWO innings ~ SIX hits ~ EIGHT runs ~ FOUR earned runs ~ THREE walks ~ FIVE strikeouts

} Dom got the final out of the 5th (but not before giving up inherited runners)
} Erasmo pitched TWO full but, gave up TWO runs
} Yourvis was the only one with a clean sheet (though he did allow a walk)

It was just an ugly, ugly game at the absolute wrong time of the season 😦

AT the PLATE
Not a lot to see here . . .
THREE of the M’s SIX runs came in the only inning that they scored (the 3rd) when Michael led off with a double, Brad singled and Robbie hit a 2-run single for the M’s only runs.

IN the FIELD
Felix had the rare error and there were NO double-plays turned

Mariners 1 | Astros 10 

ON the MOUND
Mr Young’s struggled continued . . .
He gave up TWO 2-run homers in the 1st, an RBI double in the 2nd and back-to-back solo shots in the 4th which is when Lloyd finally made the switch . . .
THREE innings ~ EIGHT hits ~ SEVEN earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ THREE strikeouts

} Erasmo came in to relieve Chris and basically cruised through the 4th, 5th and 6th allowing only a walk and a single and no runs. Then came the 7th – where a THREE-run homer sealed the deal for the ‘stros
} Lucas had mop up duty – retired the side in order in the 9th

AT the PLATE
Move along, nothing to see here but, ONE walk by Austin, who scored the only run on Robbie’s RBI hit . . .
Things looked good in the 4th with THREE straight singles and no outs – Chris T struckout and Austin grounded into a (controversial – out on interference) double play. Only THREE more scattered singles the rest of the way.

IN the FIELD
Only ONE double-play turned but, THREE turned against them

Mariners 1 | Angels 8

ON the MOUND

They say, all good things must come to an end unfortunately it also coincided w/Kuma’s troubles of late . . .
He retired the first EIGHT men he faced (including FOUR via K) but, once he allowed that TWO-out walk, Kuma wasn’t able to recover. He allowed a single and another walk, then the dagger was the SEVEN-pitch AB to Pujols who doubled and cleared the bases (then another double scored him and in seemingly a blink – it was FOUR-zip)
THREE.ONE innings ~ SIX hits ~ SEVEN earned runs ~ TWO walks ~ FOUR earned runs

} the bright side, was the pen of Dom, Lucas, Erasmo (!) and Yourvis combined for . . .
FOUR.TWO innings ~ THREE hits ~ ONE earned run ~ THREE walks ~ TWO strikeouts

AT the PLATE
Only SIX hits . . .
~ TWO for extra bases (LoMo and Robbie doubled)
~ the lone run came via a Humberto ground out that scored LoMo

IN the FIELD
ZERO DP’s turned (TWO turned against them) and Robbie with a rare error
