Mariners pitching woes continue in 9-3 loss to Angels

Mariners fall to Angels

The Mariners miserable May continued yesterday with a 9-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels…

Angels beat Mariners 9-3

After starting the first two months of the season 18-and-13, Seattle has gone 6-and-21 in May and has lost 9 of its past ten.

Yesterday’s game also was another case of the Mariner’s starting pitcher not even making 5-innings. Yusei Kikuchi gave up 6-runs on 10-hits in 3-and-a-third, including two home runs. It’s the 3rd time in the last six games a Seattle pitcher didn’t last 5-innings.

Seattle Manager Scott Servais said when you don’t have your “A-game”, you have to find something else…
