Michael Pineda, offense, less than stellar in loss to Tigers

Michael Pineda has had better outings command-wise than this one. Pineda was hit early and often in this game, battled to keep it close, then fell behind Jhonny Peralta and served up a two-run homer that pretty much ended it.
Seattle takes an 8-1 loss in which Pineda gave up six of the runs — five earned.


The rookie was able to battle and compete and keep things at 3-1 until his sixth and final inning. But he still gave up the most runs he’s allowed in a start this year in his second-shortest outing.
The Mariners might as well have been down 3-1 all game because they did next to nothing offensively against Max Scherzer, squandering some early opportunities, then barely touching him after that.
Seattle got a run in the sixth on an Ichiro triple and a Brendan Ryan sac fly. But ultimately, they were full value for the loss.
That’s four losses in six with the road trip finale tomorrow.
