Erik Bedard, Mariners keep game close but fall short against Rangers

mari04042011 041.JPG
Erik Bedard allowed just three earned runs over five innings and the Mariners did make some huge plays to keep the game close.
But there weren’t enough to offset the dropped line drive by Ichiro that cost Seattle a pair of runs in a 6-4 loss to the Texas Rangers. Nor to offset the missed opportunity at the plate in the fifth inning when, with Ichiro on third and one out, Milton Bradley went down swinging and Jack Cust struck out.


Bradley wound up with three hits in the game and doubled and scored a run in the eighth to make it close. And that stellar double-play turned by Jack Wilson will certainly go down as a season-highlight in six months.
But tonight, it just wasn’t enough.
The Rangers hit two more home runs and now have 13 this year. Seattle has 1.
Mariners fall to 2-2.
