Mariners Do the Texas Two-Step, Err… Run [VIDEO/PHOTOS]
Not even 24 hours after a 10-run, 15--hit onslaught, the Seattle Mariners came back to earth with a thud Tuesday (Aug. 10) at Globe Life Field in Arlington, TX in a 4-2 loss to the Texas Rangers.
The M's could muster only four hits off of six Texas pitchers with the sparse offensive highlights coming from J.P. Crawford and Kyle Seager. Crawford laced and RBI single in the top of the 5th inning to score Dee Gordon to avoid the shutout and keep his current hitting streak alive at six consecutive games. Seager, meanwhile, continued to rake in the Lone Star state gathering two more knocks to raise his batting average on the season to a robust .309.
Mariners starting pitcher Marco Gonzalez had a decent outing throwing five innings and surrendering four runs despite being betrayed by his catcher in the first inning that allowed to Rangers to plate before settling in.
The rubber match of the three-game series starts at 6:05 Wednesday (Aug. 12) night.
