Mariners Vs. Rockies game 2
My 20th game of the year.
This game I planned on going to until I relived it was a 2:10 start. I had to work til 1PM and thought I was going to sit this one out. It would have only have been the 3rd home game I would have missed this season. Even til this morning I was not sure if I was going. I really don’t like showing up for games 10 minutes before the game starts. So when I got off work I figured I could make it to the game. I headed home because I totally was not expecting to go today. So I made it into Coors during the National Anthem and headed directly down to the first baseline to get first pitch.
Christian Friedrich was the starting pitcher for the Rockies. This would be his third start since being brought up he started in San Diego and San Fransisco. He won his first start against the Padres and should have won his start, that he got a no decision against the Giants. It was his Coors debut and a lot was expected from him. He started this game out well sitting the Mariners down in order. He threw 12 pitches in the inning.
The third out of the inning was ICHIRO flying out to Dexter in center field. As Dex was running in, Mike from Aspen called to Dex for the ball and he tossed it up to his son’s friend Jack.
Jason Vargas was the starting pitcher for Mariners.
Marco Scutaro was the first batter for the Rockies and hit a pop very high that was fielded by Mariners first baseman Alex Liddi. The Rockie like the Mariners went down in order.
Friedrich did not start the 2nd inning off very well he walked the first . Batter he faced in the inning and Kyle Seager hit a HR for a Mariners 2-0 lead. Tulo would lead off the bottom of the 2nd. by walking, the Rockies were not as fortunate and Michael Cuddyer did not hit a HR but gave it a good ride to right field but the ball was caught by ICHIRO (Just Have the Need to yell his name, I think it was inspired by the Japanese guy in Major League 2)
ICHIRO catches Cuddyers hit.
Marco Scutaro takes a dive/ fall after a grounded hit by the mariners in the 3rd. I think I am gonna name all post according to a Scutaro photo!
Ok maybe not but this is 2 in a row!
The Mariner did score 2 more runs in the 3rd and 1 in the 4th. (5-0) Mariners
Friedrich lasted til the 6th he was responsible for ‘3 more runs that inning and then….
….Esmil Roger was brought in to stop the bleeding or pour salt in the wound. Look at it how you want. He came in with bases loaded and a few of Friedrichs runners scored. He would also allow one of his own! (9-0)
Mike with his son Sivan and Jack.
Thanks for the Brat BURRPP!!
The Rockies put up a fight after pulling most of the starter in the 7th. Jason Giambi started the mini rally with a double. He scored on a Jordan Pacheco single. Jason Giambi was the only Rockie to get on base twice in the whole game and he came in in the 7th and only batted twice.
…it was a HR!!!!!
Ramon Hernandez ended the inning grounding out.
The end of the 7th means one thing!!!!
The Mariners scored another run in the 8th and that was pretty much it. The Rockies batters are making the Nariners pitchers look like total rock stars and not like a 18-24 team. These games should have been a little closer and the Rockies should have been in them for a little more than an inning or 2. So the down would spiral continues. Hopeful they have hit rock bottom and can now start their recovery.
Well that is it for this one. I will be at Coors for the last game of this home stand and series.
See Ya there!
