The Mariners came to an end in those three innings today and completed their sweep of the Tigers with a decisive 7-0 full-time victory. The pitcher is Cruisin, and the offense is money, so Ooh Baby Baby, get ready to read all about having a great day at the Motown.
Yesterday we saw Marco Gonzales struggle a bit with the aggressive Tigers, uncharacteristically missing from outside the zone, counting behind and giving up some hard touches. Not so with today’s starter Logan Gilbert, who decided to take a fastball-focused approach, essentially reducing his arsenal to two courts, the fastball and the slider.this is all [He] need to pass.
Gilbert makes the Tigers stink after his fastball 31% of the time, stinks after his slider 60%(!) of the time, and occasionally hits a curveball for fun because he only hits two The second hit completed six innings, making the Tigers hitters look like a chain of fools. One of the hits was a thumping Javier Báez single in the first, and the other was a weaker single by Riley Greene in the third. The third inning was the only time Gilbert faced any close danger from these Tigers, starting with his day’s walk, to Tucker Barnhart. After a Green single and one out, Gilbert had Victor Reyes wobbly while Tyler Trammell – called up as part of a roster expansion today, Viva Ty – completed a sweet dive The game is over, this game is over:
Such was Gilbert, who methodically dismantled the Tigers’ offense for the next three innings. He said he felt his slider (he recently tweaked it “slightly”) felt really good today, so he leaned heavily on it and was happy with his control of the zone – on the edge and not too much Far in the middle of the plate, let him flick the fastball past the Tigers hitters and get nine strikeouts.
Gilbert’s day was interrupted after only 89 pitches after six innings as the bullpen rested and the Mariners had built up a big lead by then as the Tigers’ offense swept through the game. did not do anything. The whole thing feels like a not too strenuous school assignment could be done with just the right amount of effort. Logan’s Venus, and the rest of the bullpen, ended the Tigers with zero runs in three innings. Matt Brash destroyed the Tigers with some nasty sliders, hitting two in his innings and almost looking apologetic for it. Another roster extension call-up and another MB in the bullpen, Matthew Boyd, in his Mariners debut, needed all eight pitches to collect three ground ball outs. In those eight pitches, Boyd showed his starter’s curve, switch, four-seam and two-seam. It will be interesting to see how the team uses him going forward. Penn Murfee allowed a couple of hits — Green’s second of the day and Harold Castro’s small parachute shot — but was able to escape damage and prove he was up to the second emotional and kept the suspension.
Sam Haggerty was nearly caught on the mound with Brash at the same time we awarded Venus, there must be one:
Remember the day Sam Hagerty broke Aaron Goldsmith. Sadly not ruled a capture – you can see why it was ruled a network assist here:
— but on the bright side, it allowed Brash to go back and get a strikeout, much to the delight of family and friends in the room (Canada is close to Detroit, they say).Haggerty, his mother was [Journey voice] Born and raised in South Detroit, there are also some families in attendance, so everyone wins.But especially these fans, can’t help it [Themselves] But be surprised at Spider Sam, Spider Sam, do anything a Swagie ham can.
With the pitcher missing the pitch, the Mariners needed just one (1) run to win today’s game, and Eduardo Rodríguez had to give up immediately as the Mariners used the lead to walk to Julio and Tigers third baseman Candelario. One thing the Tigers couldn’t do was give the Mariners a free base runner and an extra out, as Eugenio Suárez immediately opened Eduardo Rodríguez’s fastball single to score Julio and give the Mariners an early lead for the second day in a row.The Tigers must think there’s a ghost in there [Their] The house, as the ghost of yesterday’s game, haunts today in these early games.
But as much as the Mariners needed to win the day, that wasn’t all they got because everyone in this lineup needed love. In the third inning, Julio was on the court again, tired of all the talk about the other Rookie of the Year candidates, and decided to remind everyone why he, and not some slapped Cleveland outfielder, is the real ROY :
Julio just made it look easy. Then, since Ty France is a responsible nanny who won’t let his young charge wander around unattended, the au pair (credit from mbmatt on Twitter) uses his own one-man shot Chased this rookie:
Ty France, my Cherie Amour. Again, this would be all the Mariners need because of the suspension, but they went ahead and added some runs: it wouldn’t be an “OBP all the time” Mariners without JP at least a walk and Sam Team Game Hagerty turned a double into a single, allowing Curt Casali to score his second hit as a Mariner, a big two-pointer double:
Another RBI single from Ty “je suis fixed” France pushed the lead to 6-0, and in the ninth, a full-base walk from Hawkeye Toro made it 7-0. Every bit hurts. If we’re nitpicking, we can point out that there are eight runners left at base today, which is partly a cost of doing business when you have that many runners — the Mariners have it in every inning Traffic, except for the second and eighth innings (Haggerty and Casali are the common denominator for both). But we give credit to the Mariners, who are now playing a season-high 15 games at .500, recording their ninth series sweep of the season, and after winning a team, if not sweeping, they Should at least have a series win. The Bachman-Turner Overdrive may be a Canadian band (which sources tell me are very close to Detroit), but wherever it happens, seeing Mariners Takin’ Care of Business is a letdown satisfied.
