Seattle Mariners Game 87: Mariners 3 Tigers 2

Another excellent start for RA Dickey. He was solid for 6 innings giving up only 2 earned runs. His final line was 6 innings pitched, 4 hits, 2 earned runs, 5 walks, 3 strikeouts. His only 2 blemishes on two separate solo HR's. One by Guillen in the first and one by Miguel Cabrera in the 4th. His walk total was a little high but that is too be expected with a knuckle ball pitcher. He ended up with the no decision since the Mariners didn't get the go ahead run until the 8th inning. All the Mariners runs in this one game by way of the HR. Jeff Clement hit a solo shot in the 6th inning and a 2 run shot in the 8th to give the Mariners a 3-2 lead. Clement has looked more comfortable at the plate as of late and I am excited about his future with this team and in baseball in general. Tell me again why we extended Johjima for 3 years when we have this kid?

With this win the M's have a chance to win their 4th series in a row. Even if they lose tomorrow, taking 2 of 4 against the Tigers is not a bad thing.
