Bergman, M’s Turn Table On BoSox, Win 5-0
The recently maligned Seattle Mariners offense, or lack thereof, scored enough runs today to give starter Christian Bergman all he needed to vault the M's to a 5-0 shutout in the final game of their three-game set at Fenway Park against Boston. The Red Sox had shut Seattle out the previous two nights in the hitting-friendly confines of baseball's second-oldest park.
Bergman went seven solid innings allowing no runs on just four hits whilst walking two and striking out as many to garner his second win against two losses this year.
Seattle's first run of the game, which broke a 24-inning scoreless streak came without the aid of the Mariners bats when Boston starter Rick Porcello uncorked a wild pitch to score Kyle Seager from third in the fourth inning. Robinson Cano tacked on a two-run insurance dinger in the top of the ninth. The M's gathered 16 hits on the day.
Seattle, 2-4 on their current road trip, heads to Denver tomorrow to take on the NL West-leading Rockies in a brief two-game series.
