5/31 game thread — Mariners vs. Tigers

3:23 p.m. The M’s win, 5-0. Reed homers in the eighth, and Morrow and Putz close the door.
2:51 p.m. My bad earlier — only Leyland was ejected. That’s it for Felix after 7 innings and 87 pitches. He struck out seven and walked none — though he hit two batters. Morrow’s coming in.
2:27 p.m. Just had a long delay as Detroit’s Jim Leyland was ejected. Still 4-0 M’s heading into the bottom of the sixth.
2:05 p.m. The Mariners added a pair of runs in the fourth, one when Kenji Johjima stole home — it was a squeeze gone bad (then good) when the the pitch went in the dirt — and another when Miguel Cairo scored on an Ichiro grounder.
1:53 p.m. You might want to save this line, because you might not ever see it again: Kenji Johjima just stole home. The wild pitch surely didn’t hurt there.
1:47 p.m. This one’s scooting righ talong. Hernandez made a great survival play in the third, stabbing a Pudge Rodriguez line drive that came pretty darn close to his head. Then a double play helped the M’s escape the fourth with the lead 2-0.
1:27 p.m. The M’s lead 2-0 on a Johjima single in the first — bailing out Jose Lopez, who failed to score from third on Adrian Beltre’s fly out an at-bat earlier. The Felix came out and dispatched the Tigers in eight pitches.
1:07 p.m. Felix gets out of the first with three strikeouts, but it takes 25 pitches to do it. We’ll see how that affects him from here on out.
