Rob Johnson home run, Jarrod Washburn’s pitching and some defense lead M’s victory

Jarrod Washburn is a much better pitcher this year than last. He’s already surpassed his win total, is now below 3.00 in ERA for the first time in who knows how long…but he also has some gloves behind him.


Franklin Gutierrez came up huge in the seventh, faking out the lead runner after letting a ball drop in front of him. If the Rangers get two on, Washburn might have lost this game. Instead, he escapes the seventh, Rob Johnson homers in the bottom of the inning and the Mariners go on to win 4-1 to again move 3 1/2 games out.
Oh yeah, that David Aardsma guy in the photo wasn’t too bad either, save for a two-out double by Marlon Byrd (gee, Byrd seemed to get his name in every blog update tonight).
Personally, I felt the Rangers left Kevin Millwood in the game too long. He probably should have been pulled before Johnson’s homer, but certainly after it. Instead, Jack Hannahan hits a double and winds up scoring a big insurance run.
