For the 9th straight time Carlos Silva got the loss. After starting the season 3-0 he has lost 9 straight decisions. Perhaps it is time for Carlos to figure out that giving up runs early in the game is not the way to help your team win games. 9 hits and 4 earned runs through only 4 innings of work. Not a good day on the hill.
As usual the the Mariners could not muster up any offense so I suppose it didn't really matter what the starting pitcher did or didn't do. We didn't put up our 3 runs till the 9th inning when it was much to late to try and salvage a win. The only positive in this game in my opinion was Jeff Clements 2 run HR in the 9th. Hopefully his is a sign his bat will come around and he will start hitting the way everyone knows he is capable of.
