You likely didn’t see the game anyways, since it started at 10:00 AM Pacific time this morning.
But even if you started watching the slugfest, you were probably gone by the bottom of the sixth inning, following a rain delay that forced FSN to broadcast all the garbage they usually show during the middle of the weekday.
And then as soon as they got back to playing again, the Mariners decided they had had enough. They promptly allowed the Tigers to score three runs in the sixth, then gave them two more in the bottom of the ninth.
All told, Detroit racked up seven runs, including five after the soggy intermission.
The M’s tallied six behind four longballs (off the bats of Jose Lopez, Kenji Johjima, Russell Branyan, and Mike Sweeney), all coming before the delay.
Way to piss one away, Mariners.
Oh, and in case you’re wondering, all six of Seattle’s runs came off of former Mariner Jarrod Washburn, who raised his season ERA from 2.95 before the game to 3.18 after it. I guess the only good news is we traded Wash when we did.
