Daily coverage of the Mariners during the season and all year long.

Game thread, Mariners vs. Dodgers, 6-28

UPDATE 3:35 P.M.: Lowe takes over in the eight. Two solid innings by Batista. But I think this is going to be nervous time over the final two.
UPDATE 2:56 P.M. (BOTTOM OF SIXTH): Batista on the mound.
UPDATE 2:41 P.M. (END OF FIFTH) i wasn’t sure if Griffey was going to lumber to that ball in time, but he got there, snagging it at his shoetops to end the inning. Olson is known as a guy that struggles in the middle innings, and that was the case. But it’s still 4-2 Mariners. Miguel Batista was heating up in the pen last inning. Olson is at 72 pitches.
Here comes Junior to the plate.
UPDATE 1:57 P.M. (middle of third): Sorry, got caught up in another blog post — Jack Zduriencik commenting on the news of the day. Matt Kemp did not play Lopez’s two-run double well. He kept drifting back leisurely, then realized it was over his head and made a desperate leap. I do believe that the man on-deck, Franklin Gutierrez, would have hauled it in.
It’s 4-0. If the Mariners can somehow take this series, it would be a major achievement — winning two out of three from the best team in baseball, on the road, while facing some adversity. I know — it’s just the third inning.
UPDATE 1:11 P.M.:Ichiro vs. Kuroda is a much-anticipated matchup by the Japanese media. They were teammates on the 2006 WBC team, but Kuroda was scratched this year because of injury. Kuroda wins round one as Ichiro lines softly to shortstop. Ichiro comes into this game with a .506 day-time batting average, for what it’s worth.
And so the Langerhans era begins.
