Unfortunately Kevin Millwood did not bring his A-Game last night, giving up a Leadoff HR in the 1st inning and 2 more runs in the 5th while striking out 0. But It was good enough to keep us in the mix. The clear Game MVP was Michael Saunders who batted 2nd last night and went 3-4 with 2 Runs, two 2-run HR's (!) for a total of 4 RBI!
This gives them their 6th consecutive Win and their 13th win at Safeco in their past 14 games! They are now 31-30 at home this year (after starting with a horrible home record) and only 5 games under .500 (59-64). The team has put up a 23-13 record since the All-Star break, the best record in the AL in that time.
Left Fielder Trayvon Robinson set a Mariner's single game record of 10 Putouts, just one off of the record for Left Fielders, previously set in 1950 and 1969.
Now we sit and wait for the next game, The encore game for King Felix Hernandez! This will be his first start since his Perfect game on August 15th!
For those who did not hear, the normal 800 member "Kings Court" will be expanded to a "Supreme Court" tonight as the first 34,000 Fans will receive Yellow Shirts commemorating the event! So Show up early and Stay Late!
