When I saw the line up earlier today before the game I was like ohhhh shit, It’s about to go DOWN.
As the starting pitching has gone overlooked as of late, this line up has been producing pretty damn well. You can’t put the “Long Haired Bash Brothers” going back to back in the line up and not expect them to go off. Ben Gamel and Taylor Motter combined for two runs and three RBI’s in the 7th inning just by themselves.
Gotta give credit where credit is due though, the pitching staff has really picked up the slack for the all of the injuries the Mariners have had thus far. Chase De Jong added another quality start for the staff with a line of 6 innings 4 hits 1 run and 3 strikeouts. Equally as overlooked, the bullpen has been shutting down as well other than a couple mishaps.
It’s been reassuring with the success they’re having despite all the injuries. Whatever they’re feeding them down in AAA keep it going.
Mariners scored seven runs in the 7th to bust the game wide open and have a chance to take the series tomorrow before another Roooooad tripppppp.
Final Score: 8-2 Mariners
