Love ‘em 1. Offense was on

In a 14 inning game you expect a lot of hits and offense. That’s exactly what Seattle did on their way to scoring seven runs tonight.

As a team, Seattle went 18-60—or a solid .300. Seven of the nine starters had multiple hits, with Jesus Montero and Munenori Kawasaki leading the group at three a piece. The only Mariner to not register a hit was Michael Saunders, who was 0-7 with four strikeouts.

The team registered three extra base hits, including two home runs.

Despite the hit parade it wasn’t a perfect night. The team did strike out 12 times while only walking twice. Still, it was an exciting game with Seattle racking up plenty of hits.

2. Beavan

Despite the score, Blake Beavan pitched a pretty good game. The right hander went six deep on 104 pitches. He only struck out two, but also only walked one.

Beavan was cruising through most of the night until the seventh inning. While he was only responsible for one base runner in the frame, he was eventually charged for three earned runs—not quite fair.

All-in-all it was another solid start for Beavan, and it’s a shame that he couldn’t get that fifth win a row.

3. Pryor

There’s been a lot of talk that Stephen Pryor could be the closer of the future. While Tom Wilhelmsen has done a great job, it’s hard to argue against this young flamethrower taking his job.

Pryor pitched 1.2 innings on 28 pitches—21 for strikes—tonight. While he did give up two hits, he didn’t allow any runs. He also struck out four while walking none.

Pryor’s ERA is now at 1.13 for the year. His four K performance pushed his K/9 up to 12.38 on the year. Not bad for a 23-year old rookie.

Hate ‘em 1. Matt Wieters

One of the better offensive catchers in the league, Wieters is always a threat in the middle of Baltimore’s lineup. He proved that tonight as he was absolutely locked in on Mariner pitching.

The young backstop was 3-6 tonight. Two of those hits were solo shots. He finished the night with a pair of RBI and runs scored.

He was also a key player on defense tonight. His play calling helped Baltimore blank the M’s through the final eight frames of the game. He also caught Trayvon Robinson stealing in the fourth.

2. Adam Jones

Remember this guy?

Traded in 2008 for the very forgettable Eric Bedard, Jones is enjoying an MVP year in 2012. The 27-year old is .291/.334/.527 on while playing solid defense.

For the most part, Jones had a quiet night—just two hits in seven at bats. Unfortunately, one of those hits came in the bottom of the 14th inning with the bases loaded. The subsequent run that scored shut the door for the Mariners.

3. Late Inning Troubles

The Mariner’s played some pretty good baseball tonight, but for the most part it was at the beginning of the game.

After the seventh inning Seattle was outscored 5-0. The bullpen had some shut down moments, but also gave up four runs. While eight of Seattle’s 18 hits came past the seventh, they failed to do anything with their base runners.

If the M’s could have put just one run together in the tail end of this game they could have had a win.

Here’s the BOXSCORE | and Our Editor “Q” has his RECAP


Seattle finished with 18 hits. Baltimore has won 12 consecutive extra-inning games. Jesus Montero had three hits, marking the eighth time he’s had three or more this season.

Markakis has seven multi-hit outings over his last 12 games. Mariners SS Brendan Ryan (elbow) missed his third straight game.

Britton has allowed 20 runs (17 earned) in 13 1/3 innings over his last three starts.
