Seriously? Did anyone watch this game and NOT feel like they were in The Twilight Zone? It was weird and creepy. Was I happy we won? Of course. But the manner in which we did just left me feeling eerie. What was so eerie you ask? Well for starters Brad Wilkerson was 3-3 with a walk. Jose Vidro was 2-4 with 2 doubles, 2 RBI's and a walk. And to top it all off we scored FIVE runs in the 9th inning. That's right folks I said FIVE. Count them with me.... 1, 2, 3, 4, 5!!! Seems we have struggled to score 5 runs in an entire game. Never mind 5 in the same inning. But I digress...
Carlos Silva pitched another outstanding game. 7 innings pitched and only 2 earned runs. So far Silva has been worth every penny of the contract he signed in the off season. Will be interesting to see what his numbers end up being come the end of the year.
The offense frustrated again in this game. That is of course until the 9th inning. But up until then an RBI double from Vidro in the 3rd and Beltre's solo HR in the 5th was all the Mariners could manage. Scoring 5 in the 9th inning was exciting, but this team needs to be more consistent. They can't wait till late in the game and try and scramble to win every night.
Next up is Washburn vs Lee. Little nervous about Cliff Lee considering he is 4-0 with a 0.68 ERA or something crazy like that.
