Red-Hot Zunino Powers M’s Past Tigers With Two Bombs
For as awful as Mariners catcher Mike Zunino was in April and May, he is just as hot in June.
After a brief stint in AAA Tacoma, where he retooled his swing, the M’s backstop has been on a tear in the month while belting 9 HRs with 26 RBI and a .338 average. Should he keep that pace up, he may be a legitimate contender for the July All-Star game as he has already vaulted to 4th in RBI among American League catchers.
Last night, Zunino cracked two two-run homers in propelling the Mariners to a 6-2 victory at Seafeco Field.
