Game thread, Mariners vs. Twins, June 2: Mariners lose, 10-0


A miserable day all the way around as the Mariners are limited to five hits, and give up 16, in 10-0 loss. Bonderman was awful, Noesi not much better, and the M’s mustered nothing on offense.

MARINERS EIGHTH: Sucre singles for the Mariners’ fifth hit — their first since the fourth inning — but doesn’t advance. 10-0 Twins.

TWINS SEVENTH: Brian Dozier gets Twins’ fourth homer of the day, and the Twins get one more on Escobar’s RBI single. They have 16 hits and lead 10-0. Noesi doing only slightly better than Bonderman.

TWINS SIXTH: Three straight singles off Noesi lead to another Twins run, and they lead 8-0. M’s have been limited to four hits.

TWINS FOURTH: Bonderman’s day is over as he gives up a two-run homer to Willingham and another single. He gave up nine hits — seven for extra bases, three out of the ballpark — and seven runs. Hector Noesi replaced him. I’d be surprised if we saw Bonderman again. I’m sure the Mariners are closely monitoring Erasmo Ramirez’s start with Tacoma today.  7-0 Twins.

TWINS FOURTH: Another rough inning, as  Bonderman gives up a homer (first career by Chris Hermmann) and triple (Hicks) followed by a sac fly for a 5-0 Twins lead. Twins have already hit for cycle today: two homers, a triple, three doubles and a single.

MARINERS FOURTH: Morales broke a streak out eight straight Mariner outs with a smash off the wall in right-center — and was thrown out trying to stretch a double. Not even close. 3-0 Twins

TWINS THIRD: Bonderman gives up leadoff single to Mauer but no further damage, thanks to great play at first by Liddi on smash by Doumit that was headed for extra bases. 3-0 Twins

MARINERS THIRD: Diamond puts them down in order — seven straight Mariners have gone down. 3-0 Twins

TWINS SECOND: Bonderman got rocked — a leadoff homer by Doumit (who has now hit for the cycle in his last four at-bats) and three doubles for two more runs. He’s already over 40 pitches. 3-0 Twins

TWINS FIRST: It’s like he never left. Bonderman retires Twins in order, including a line out to left by ever-dangerous Joe Mauer, who has faced him 27 times previously with a .296 average.

MARINERS FIRST: The Mariners get three hits but nothing to show for it thanks to a liner by Jason Bay that was turned into a double play. With two aboard, Ibanez flied out. 0-0

Jeremy Bonderman is back on a major-league mound for the first time since Oct. 1, 2010 — 975 days ago. He gets three former Tacoma teammates starting with him  — Jesus Sucre, Carlos Triunfel and Alex Liddi.

Oh, yeah: It’s Raul Ibanez’s 41st birthday.
