g17 | another loss, streak alive, Felix back

M’s 1 | Astros 3

I can hear it now . . . 

back to the same ol’ M’s, blah, blah, blah.

But, I find it more . . .

ENcouraging that Felix had a solid outing (SIX IP ~ SIX hits ~ THREE runs ~ ONE walk ~ FIVE K’s) against a good (if not GREAT) team

than DIScouraging that our offense couldn’t muster up much – ‘t was Verlander, after all

And – the STREAK is still ALIVE!!!

Thanks, Mitch ๐Ÿ™‚

of great starts, homer streaks and too many errors. . .

Well, this was unexpected!

Whodathunk that the Mariners would be leading the majors in WINS after the first ELEVEN games?!? Granted, they’ve played TWO more games than every other team but the A’s but, still . . .

Going in to today’s rubber match w/the White Sox, this was the stat leader board . . .

Yes! YOUR Seattle Mariners were leading in ALL the above offensive categories! (plus doubles and stolen bases – which didn’t show within the screen print) ๐Ÿ™‚

And, AFTER today’s game . . .

the homer streak is alive! ELEVEN straight games with a home run!

And, the pitching isn’t all that bad – EIGHT wins from starters and SIX saves from relievers (despite our closer being on the IL)

And then there’s the defense . . .

once upon a time, among our strongest suits, now the weakest sauce ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
