Mariners knock off Dodgers 4-3

Seattle edges LA Dodgers 4-3

The Mariners were tasked with taking on the best team in Major League Baseball Monday, the Los Angeles Dodgers. And Seattle was up to the challenge. Seattle got home runs from Taylor Trammel and Jose Marmolejos in a 4-3 victory with only 9-hits combined between the two teams.

Marmolejos got things going early for the Mariners with a runner aboard in the bottom of the 1st inning…

Taylor Trammel would add to the highlight reel with a solo shot off Dodger starter Dustin May in the bottom of the 2nd…

Justus Sheffield worked 5-and-2/3rds innings for the win, allowing 3-runs on 4-hits with 6-strikeouts and 3-walks. Seattle’s bullpen of Vest, Misiewicz, Graveman and Montero were once again superb, allowing 0-runs and 1-hit over the final 3-and-a-third innings with 3-strikeouts.

Seattle also got some fantastic play in the field by Evan White, Mitch Haniger and Dylan Moore…

Manager Scott Servais was asked about the intensity of Monday’s game and how there was a constant buzz in the ballpark…
