“It’s bad baseball.” – Mariner Manager Scott Servais

Mariners blown out by Angels

Earlier this season, it was the Mariners putting up crooked numbers while leading the American League West. These days, they are giving up crooked numbers and remain last in the division. Such was the case again Sunday at T-Mobile Park as the Angels scored 7 in the 2nd and 5 in the 5th to win 13-to-3…

Angels beat Mariners 13-3

Albert Pujols did much of the damage himself, driving in 5-runs, including a 3-run home run in the 2nd. David Fletcher and Mike Trout also delivered 3-hits apiece as the Halos had 15-hits for the game.

Seattle starter Marco Gonzales had another rough outing, surrendering 10-runs on 9-hits in 4-and-two-thirds with three walks and two strikeouts.

Los Angeles scored 7-runs in the 2nd inning and another 5-runs in the 5th. It’s the 6th time in the Mariner’s last 12-losses that Seattle has surrendered big innings to an opposing team. Something Manager Scott Servais is not happy about…

Seattle has not announced who will start in front of LeBlanc for tonight’s first opener against Houston.

The Mariners finished May 7-and-21 and are now oh-and-2 in June. Servais said it’s frustrating to lose, but even more troublesome to see his club play bad baseball…
