Call them the “Crooked Numbers Bunch!” The Mariners put up 8-runs in the 6th inning, including two home runs in the inning by Edwin Encarnacion, en route to a 13-5 win over Kansas City Monday…
Also going deep for Seattle was Daniel Vogelbach (for the 4th game in a row); rookie Brandon Moore (his first MLB homer); and Jay Bruce (his 6th of the year and 3rd in his past two games). With its 5-home runs on Monday, the Mariners have now hit a Major League Record 32 home runs in its first 12-games.
25-times in 12 games, the Mariners have put crooked numbers on the board (a crooked number being anything other than a 0 or 1). They did it another three times on Monday, including 8-runs in the 6th breaking a 4-4 tie.
Seattle starter Felix Hernandez exited with an illness after allowing two runs in the first inning.
The two teams play again today at 5:15 with Marco Gonzales facing the Royals’ Jakob Junis.
