Miguel Olivo did the special thing that Josh Bard had been calling for on Wednesday night, hitting that grand slam to tie it in the eighth.
But with two on and one out, Franklin Gutierrez popped out and Chone Figgins struck out looking.
David Pauley came on to pitch the eighth and, yes, the Blue Jays scored a pair to take the lead for good in a 7-5 loss for Seattle.
That’s 12 losses in a row, equaling the streak of 2008 for the second longest in team history.
With two out and none on, Mike McCoy doubled to left field, Yunel Escobar walked and then Rajai Davis doubled to the right center gap to bring both home.
And so, this streak continues.
The only good to come out of this series was the Mariners scoring 16 runs in three games. They have cushioned the gap with their pace to beat the 513-run performance of last season. Not by much, but it’s a start.
This team had better get some trades done soon. That “veteran lineup” didn’t look all that hot the first seven innings.
