Mariners 3 | Angels 1

3 brooms

ON the MOUND
James was awesome – pitching into the 9th and, but for getting hit on the elbow by a come-backer, would likely have recorded only the second complete game by a Mariners pitcher this season. Fingers crossed that it’s just a bruise . . .
EIGHT.ONE innings ~ FIVE hits ~ ONE run ~ ZERO earned runs ~ ONE walk ~ SIX strikeouts

Bartender walked one but, got the last two outs.

AT the PLATE
Only SEVEN total hits . . .

  • none for extra bases
  • all scoring in the 4th (2 singles and a sac-fly)
  • TWO of the hits were milestones (Mike Freeman’s first and second major league hits and the second resulted in his first major league RBI)

IN the FIELD
Shawn had a fielding error and the M’s didn’t turn a DP (had one turned against them)

Awesome outing from Kuma in the middle-game they won (and Steve earned his 22nd save) but, little else to write home about in this series 😦

Mariners 1 | Astros 2
yet another ONE-run loss, Wade M threw a nice quality+ start but, McCullers all but shut down the M’s bat and oh, the wasted chances (lead-off triple in the first that doesn’t score and bases-loaded with no outs = no runs)

Mariners 2 | Astros 5
Tai had to come out of the game due to his previous foot injury, Monty filled in great but, bats were fairly non-existance

Mariners 8 | Astros 9
heart-breaker, down early, tied middle then a roller coaster till the bitter end

Mariners 9 | Orioles 4

four brooms

Pretty fun to be in attendance for the completion of a FOUR-game SWEEP!
Especially, when it was shared ❤

ON the MOUND
Not Kuma’s best effort but, thanks to the “bully and the O”, it was plenty good enough . . .
SIX innings ~ TEN hits ~ FOUR earned runs ~ ZERO walks ~ ONE strikeout

that bully of Edwin, Joaquin and Vidal combined for . . .
THREE innings ~ TWO hits ~ ZERO runs ~ ZERO walks ~ FIVE strikeouts

AT the PLATE
Another double-digit hit game including . . .
FIVE doubles (Ketel, Kyle, Robbie and Nellie) and THREE of them went back-to-back-to-back in the 7th (Nellie, Kyle and Adam)

Only ONE homer but, boy, was if memorable . . .
Seth’s FOURTH game in-a-row with a homer and this ONE counted for FOUR!
And, oh, by the way, it was his first career grand slam 🙂

IN the FIELD

  • Martin had a bit of an unusually rough day in center – an error and a couple of mis-cues but, not too concerned – he’ll learn from it.
  • No DP’s turned by either side

Mariners 12 | Orioles 6

Welcome back to the bigs, ZU!!! 

 

ON the MOUND
After cruising through THREE, James couldn’t quit get through SIX . . .
FIVE.TWO innings ~ NINE hits ~ FOUR runs (3 earned) ~ TWO walks ~ TWO strikeouts

  • The Bartender (fresh up from Tacoma) got the final out of the 6th
  • Nathan went THREE, allowed a TWO-run homer in the but, was credited with the save and preserved James’ second victory and the M’s series win!

AT the PLATE
Where do I start?!?
SIXTEEN hits (including NINE for extra-bases) and FIVE home runs (including TWO from ZU in his 2016 debut!!!!)

  • So great to see ZU debut in a big way – hopefully the start of a very good thing!
  • Nellie, Adam and Seth (third in a row!) had the other homers
  • Kyle and Adam both had TWO doubles (and Adam was a triple short of the cycle!)
  • Nice to see more walks (SEVEN) than strikeouts (FIVE)
  • How ’bout Shawn?!? TWO hit, TWO runs, TWO walks
  • Only ONE starter (Dae-Ho) was without a run scored
  • Only ONE starter (Leonys) was without a hit (though he walked twice and scored once)

IN the FIELD

  • Shawn with an error
  • ONE dp turned (Kyle-Robbie-Adam)

g80 | Wade and the Big Bats . . .

oh, and that Edwin guy, and that Steve guy – they’re pretty special too 🙂

Mariners 5 | Orioles 2

big bat

ON the MOUND
Hey there, the “other Wade” is fitting in quite nicely!
his second QUALITY start as a Mariner in as many tries
(and BOTH of them vs. great hitting teams) and he gave all props to Chris
SIX innings ~ THREE hits ~ TWO earned runs ~ FIVE strikeouts

the bully was even more spectacular!
Monty, Edwin and Steve (20th save!) combined for . . .
THREE innings ~ ONE hit ~ ZERO runs ~ ZERO walks ~ SIX Ks

AT the PLATE
Double-digit hits again 🙂
TWO doubles (Dae-Ho and Nellie)
THREE homers (Seth-again!, Kyle, Dae-Ho) TWO of them w/runners on

g79 | Tai the terrific!

Mariners 5 | Orioles 3

terrific

ON the MOUND
Atta boy, Tai!
SIX.ONE innings ~ FOUR hits ~ ONE earned run ~ ZERO walks ~ FIVE strikeouts

the bully a mixed bag but, good enough . . . 

  • Edwin did his thing (striking out nearly everyone he faces)
  • Joaquin did his thing (giving up runs to nearly everyone he faces)
  • Steve did his thing (saving nearly every game he pitches)

AT the PLATE
Only NINE hits but nice ratio of runs . . .
Nellie with a double and Seth with a TWO-run shot
