Seattle Mariners good enough on offense for 4-1 win

mari0610 022.jpg
This marked the eighth straight game the Mariners have allowed three runs or fewer. That’s a new team record. All that remained to be seen was what the Mariners would do with it as a team.
Well, thanks to two home runs from Jose Lopez — that balance to the lineup we’ve talked about — the Mariners scored four runs. And when that happens, the team is now 20-8 overall compared to 9-22 when they get three or fewer.
A huge difference, obviously.
And a key difference in tonigtht’s 4-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
Lopez’s second blast came with Adrian Beltre on second base. Earlier, Yuniesky Betancourt brought a runner home from third.
That’s two guys knocked in with RISP and it’s an improvement over that 1-for-22 stretch just prior.
