Another member of the Long Hair crew pitched for the Mariners today. Dillon Overton had a pretty good outing all things considered. There’s like ten thousand injuries so if you think about it he’s like the Mariners’ eighth starter.
The Rangers scored all their runs with out a hit. I think the first run was on a sac fly after a pass ball and the second run was on a bases loaded fielders choice. Bergman came in relief for Overton and only gave up a sac fly as well. So of course the Mariners find themselves down 3-0 without the Rangers getting a hit to score a run.
It seemed like it was going to be one of those days where the bats just weren’t going to be there but they woke up late in the game. In the 7th Mariners had the bases loaded no outs. Segura drew a walk driving in a run and Valencia got a two out pinch hit single to knock in two which tied the game up at 3.
Enter in Kyle Seager…
In the 8th inning he hits a clutch solo HR to give the Mariners a 4-3 lead and Diaz shuts the door striking out the side. M’s win series against the Angels and the Rangers this home stand and head to Philly and hopefully start off the road trip on a good note.
