Beautiful win

Thoughts:
1. Stanek is not reliable setup guy come October baseball. We still need a reliever come deadline.
2. The bats were still pretty quiet today 4 freakin hits! Really?
3. 13 count em' strikeouts.

We still need bats!!!

Let's go smash some halos and call it a half!
Yea that was far from a pretty win. Pitching again just championship pitching. Great to see Cal settle down Munoz. Guy is a pure leader for this pitching. Alright give Jp Garver a day off tomorrow. Gotta put together a better lineup tomorrow. Polanco gets us the win.

Probably shouldn't steal the pitch after they catch you leaning.
Yea I was thinking that. It's ok though. Not like he was gonna score anyway. Offense is still straight trash.
I understand the philosophy....stealing with two outs. But I often do it with two strikes on the batter. We either get her a fresh count next inning, get a head start on a ball in play, or swipe a bag. But in the last inning? Not sure I'd have done it there.

When the offense is this trash... I'd be doing everything. I'd be trying to steal every bag, bunting, shortening, etc...

No arguments. But he had just got caught leaning. Pretty low percentage option, just to get a guy to second. You think they were gonna throw anything but fastball there? Might as well have yelled over to the other dugout and I let them know your stealing. I'm not stealing on the next pitch there. All I'm saying. Based on the results? Hard to say it is was the right call.

Tomorrow, the M's will hit against a rookie making his debut... Jack Kochanowicz.

He's been absolutely horrific in the minors with a 5.44 ERA over 74 games pitched, 64 starts. He has a career 1.4 WHIP in the minors and only averages 8 K's per 9.

If they can't hit him... blow the whole thing up.

My question on Polanco is it seems he plays lefties to much up the middle. Or is it just me?

Mariners win! We're HEROES!!!

Man, that was a nail-biter. Can't say our ninth innings aren't exciting.

WTF, Julio? Great throw, but a golden sombrero after his best game of the season? And that last one, on an off-speed pitch that not only was way off the plate, but started out way off the plate. I'm starting to think that Julio is just a really selfish player.

Bryce with six zeros in a road game! And a shutout!

A win is a win, and the Pudres heads smell pungently of Mariner fart.

Great to see Julio build on his 4 hit night with a Golden Shower Sombrero. Good God what a train wreck.
