Seattle Mariners Game 73: Mariners 10 Braves 2

Bedard was cruising along the first 3 innings until he started having back spasms and had to leave the game. I was convinced once he came out out that we would lose. Whenever you have a pitcher throwing well and he leaves the game it seems the bullpen just gives it up. The bullpen proved me wrong and held the Braves to only 2 runs the rest of the way.

The offense showed up tonight. Well everyone except for Sexson and Clement. Sexson was 0-3 and Clement 0-5. Yikes. Jose Lopez continues his strong season going 3-5 with 2 doubles and 4 RBI's. Beltre also had a decent night going 2-4 with 3 RBI's. It is frustrating to watch this team hit well one night and know the next day they will probably go right back to their ways and swing at everything and anything and not score runs. But for this night we might as well enjoy it. Wins have been few this season, better savor them.

Will have to wait and see how much time if any Bedard will miss.
