Mariners lose their first stinker in quite a while

The Mariners had only lost twice in their previous 10 games and neither was as bad as this 6-0 defeat. Could easily have been 16-0 without a few escape acts by Doug Fister, a great catch at the wall by Michael Saunders and overall offensive ineptness by the White Sox.
But when you yield 17 hits, you’re going to lose most of the time. That’s what the M’s did tonight and yes, they lost.
Milton Bradley made a nice, sliding catch in the ninth and gave the ball to a young child in the stands. But otherwise, it was not a good night for him. Two strikeouts and a popout his first two times up, balls not caught or cut off in left field.
And plenty of boos.
The M’s had played better baseball of late. Tonight, though, it was a lot like last year. And a few games earlier this season.
The offense has scored just 21 runs since heading to Boston last Friday. That was eight games ago. Yes, it is a concern. Has been all season and will continue to be.
