Houston, we have a rally …

. . . of sorts, at least. In the bottom of the sixth, Gutierrez led off by getting brushed by a Padilla fastball up and in. One out later, Ichiro walked after an 0-2 count, and then Jose Lopez hit a hard shot just to Ian Kinsler’s left at second. Kinsler kind of side-saddled what was a perfect double-play grounder, had the ball come off his glove and into short rightfield for an error, allowing Gutierrez to score and sending Ichiro to third.
Mike Sweeney then hit into a 4-6-3 double play, but the M’s took a 1-0 lead to the 7th.
