Seattle Mariners Game 84: Mariners 4 Blue Jays 2

Another solid outing by Washburn for his second win in a row. 6 innings pitched, 7 hits, 2 earned runs, 4 strikeouts. His only blemish in this one was a HR in the 5th inning which got the Blue Jays their only 2 runs of the game. Washburn has really battled hard in his last 7 or so starts and certainly deserves credit for turning his season around.

Miguel Cairo was pretty much the only offense the Mariners needed in this one. Cairo of all people provided 3 of the 4 Mariner runs. He had 2 doubles and 3 RBI's. Nice to see a guy like that contributing to the team effort.

Oh and with this win the Mariners have now won 3 series in a row. Never thought I would say that this season.
