Mariners at Los Angeles Angels: Sept. 7, 2011 game thread

mari09072011 005.JPG
Seattle just notched its first hit of the night and it was a big one as Trayvon Robinson opened the sixth with a solo homer to right. Robinson now has two big league home runs and both have come here against the Angels less than an hour from where he grew up in South Central Los Angeles.
Alex Liddi struck out and is now 0-for-2. But the M’s lead 1-0 midway through the sixth.
8:05 p.m.: Midway through the fifth, we’re still scoreless, with Charlie Furbush having allowed only two hits and mound opponent Jerome Williams having given up…zero.
Mike Carp drew a walk in the second and has been Seattle’s only baserunner this far.
Alex Liddi grounded out to second in his first MLB at-bat in the third.


7:35 p.m.: Charlie Furbush tries to make it two in a row for the Mariners tonight. He’ll have Alex Liddi behind him at third base.
Liddi crossed in front of Brendan Ryan for a bounding ball between the two guys by Mark Trumbo to start the bottom of the second inning. Liddi actually leaped up and waved his glove at the ball before it bounced by him. Somehow, Ryan managed to corral the ball while heading full speed to his right, then twisted and fired a strike to first base to get the runner by a step. Thing of beauty, that was. Especially since Ryan was partially screened by Liddi.
Furbush is now through two innings of this scoreless game.
