M’s take the first game of the set 4-1, powered by eight innings of one-hit ball thrown by Jason Vargas as well as Mike Carp who drove in two runs and scored.
So many heroes in tonight’s game-it’s one of those games that you walk away from feeling hopeful, satisfied, and appreciative of your team, and feeling glad that you stuck with them for the four hour long game.
And the M’s are back on track!! With a 7-4 win over the Giants and Seattle native, Tim Lincecum along with some great hitting by Jesús as well as Casper and Brendan, the Mariners are back in business!
This no-hitter tonight was different than others. Not only did six pitchers combine to throw it, but every person went out of their way to do what needed to be done. Figgin’s throw, Ichiro’s steal that put him in scoring position, Kyle’s hit, Furbush coming in without warmups, Brandon League getting a big K with RISP, Millwood going 6 strong, and Brendan’s stellar play in the 9th. Every player stood out but also came together for the win, which really shows how the Mariners are truly becoming a team and playing like a team, with one goal: win ballgames!
