Mariners vs. Twins game thread

End 7th: That is likely all for Blackburn, who went 7 innings and allowed six hits. A worthy adversary for Washburn, although the Mariners didn’t make it too hard on Blackburn (though if a couple Beltre smashes land in different places, it could have been a different story).
Middle 5th: The Mariners get a two-out RBI double of their own, this one from Ichiro’s bat that went off the wall in right center. Franklin Gutierrez, who had an infield single, scored. Gutierrez is back in center field, so whatever the trainer was looking at earlier must have not been too serious.
Interesting inning coming up for Washburn, who is at 85 pitches.
End 4th: Blackburn has retired 10 of the last 11 Mariner batters. Here’s a pretty relevant statistic: since the beggining of May, the Mariners are third in the AL in ERA. Yet they are just 13-20 in that stretch.
Middle 4th: That’s a killer of a two-out double for Mike Redmond off Washburn. Especially given Washburn’s last month (and the way the M’s have hit the past two days) that one run could end up as the difference.
End 3rd: And another streak begins. Ichiro singles, but that’s as far as he gets. There’s not much sign of life from the Mariners at the plate so far.
Middle 3rd: Quite a fortunate bounce for the Mariners, with a wild pitch bouncing right back to Quiroz, who threw it to Washburn in time to get Delmon Young out at the plate (he looked safe on replay). That — and a huge strikeout of Justin Morneau — allowed the M’s to get out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam.
Forty-eight pitches now for Washburn.
End 2nd: Ronny Cedeno. Endy Chavez. Guillermo Quiroz. Not exactly Murderer’s Row. They go down relatively easy, and we are still scoreless.
End 1st: That’s the problem with a one-out double: someone has to get a hit. After Branyan doubled, Beltre flew out, Griffey walked and Lopez grounded out.
Middle 1st: Ten pitches, three outs. Jarrod Washburn easily navigates the toughest part of the Twins’ lineup.
Edgar Martinez just threw the ceremonial first pitch to Ken Griffey Jr. on Salute to Latin American Beisbol Day.
Jarrod Washburn starts today, and like Felix Hernandez, he’s had a hard-luck year. He has a 3.22 ERA, but only a 3-4 record to show for it. He is 0-4 in his last seven starts, yet he has allowed one or zero earned runs in four of them. That’s pretty rough.
