4 errors, 1 passed ball, 1 wild pitch, lots of walks, 2 strikeouts with the bases loaded and then a strikeout with the tying run at the plate to lose the game. Rays – 5 M’s – 2. I don’t feel like I need to say much else.
Hero: Jason Vargas. He wasn’t great but he was solid and got lots of swinging strikes. As of right now, I think that Vargas is beating out RRS for the 5th starter spot once Bedard comes back. There’s still plenty of time for this to change though.
Goat: Milton Bradley. 2 strikeouts and one of them with the bases loaded. There were plenty of people to pick from tonight.
This was a bad game. I can’t wait until the Mariners score more than 3 runs in a game. Unfortunately, that won’t happen until next year. (Hopefully that jinx works). At least Cliff Lee is starting tomorrow. He’s pretty good.
I know this recap is short but if you’ve watched this team with any regularity you know exactly how they lost this game. At least it wasn’t very heartbreaking!

You are correct my friend, not quite as heartbreaking tonight. Although seeing Rafael Soriano hurts every time, knowing we gave him up for Horacio Ramirez.
That is terrible. I wonder how Horacio is doing these days.
You know what else is sad? I wrote this recap in the 7th inning because there is no hope for our offense right now.
Good old Ho-Ram. Looks like he finally retired, although I’m sure not by choice.
HAHAHA. So predictable. On the positive side, for as awful as this homestand has been, we are still just 2.5 games back…
Also, Ackley was 3-5 tonight with his first HR, and this was Pineda’s line: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 11 K
Baker, Salk and others reporting Bradley left the stadium after the 6th inning. He and Wak got into a “discussion” and then Bradley simply left the stadium. Sorry, walking out on your team isn’t cool, no matter how bad you played in one half of one game… Lame.
