Remember, we’ll have Geoff Baker Live! coming up at 5 p.m. where we’ll try to figure out how in the world today actually happened.
The Mariners stranded 10 runners before today’s bottom of the ninth and it cost them big in a 9-8 loss to the Los Angeles Angels. David Aardsma yielded an RBI single to Vladimir Guerrero on a bloop hit to right, then walked Juan Rivera with the bases loaded to force home the tying run. Kendry Morales then singled through the left side to win it.
Seattle had an 8-1 lead in the sixth inning. The M’s have no one to blame but themselves for this defeat.
