It usually works if I complain about the offense. 4TH INNING and they're making a guy with almost a 7 ERA look like Cy Young.

WAKE THE F UP OFFENSE.

They don't do most of their work until 6th or 7th inning on. Our pitching is DAMN good.

Still just a one run game. And there we are, leadoff double. Side note, nice to finally see the M's trying some small ball. J.P. is very good at laying down the bunt. Get it done kid.

There we go, moved the runner over. Let's get this run in.

I wonder how the M's would do today against the Everett AquaSox. Maybe it would be a tie going into the 9th, if they were lucky.

Experienced manager, experienced pitcher. That combo has given the M's trouble this year. Can they get at least 1 run? just one?

It absolutely is. But, this game is far from over. We should know this about this team. 8th and 9th inning, they turn it up. It's been happening much of the season.
Not over til it's over. Pitching has been VERY good this year and will keep them in the game. 7 innings ONE run for Kirby. You can't ask for more from a pitcher.

The pit
Julio just went yard on a hanging slider. So we got that going for us. :)
Welcome to the 20-20 club young man.

But I'm not gonna' be do like I did several times this year. Not going to assume a game is over until it is. 8th inning on. ALL SEASON LONG.
It's maddening, and this offense is tough to watch. BUT, they certainly don't give up.

Loved that JP made it known how bad that pitch was.

Sewald not sharp. Bad pitch and they took advantage of it.

Unless we have a comeback in us, another fairly disappointing series. The team is good but nothing special, I’m just thankful they expanded playoffs.

MAN...... I'M SHOCKED THE M'S WERE ONCE AGAIN TOTALLY DOMINATED IN SEATTLE BY A DOG CRAP PITCHER. IN THE FIRST INNING, THE GOOFY ROOT SPORTS ANNOUNCERS WERE TELLING US HOW SAAVY & EXCELLENT ANIBAL SANCHEZ WAS WITH HIS WINLESS RECORD & ERA OVER 6. THEY WERE TOUTING HIS ABILITY TO CHANGE SPEEDS & LOCATION, THUS BAFFLING HITTERS. ONLY PROBLEM IS...... M'S HITTERS ARE THE ONLY ONES HE CAN BAFFLE. SMH.
