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!
