Angels 3, Mariners 0: Mariners bats rendered useless against John Lackey

angels0909 164.jpg
This was the second complete game in a row tossed by Angels starter John Lackey, who looks far better than he did back in June and July. The Mariners take a 3-0 loss here and have now dropped five in a row.
I’ll tell you what. This team had better find a way to score some runs or this is going to turn into a sub-.500 season fairly quickly. Ichiro went 0-for-4 tonight. He was 1-for-13 on the series and of course he’s feelin some pressure. Who wouldn’t? But this team needs its established hitters to start doing something more. Tonight’s game took just two hours, three minutes and that’s too quick.
Sure, Lackey had plenty to do with it. His last three shutouts have come against the Mariners. But we’ve heard a lot of hat-tips to opposing pitchers these last five games and it isn’t always the men on the mound doing the most damage.
The M’s need to get their heads together in a hurry because this isn’t working out.
