This is getting ridiculous when it comes to how the Mariners keep getting blown apart in this ballpark. They got taken apart 11-3 tonight, surrendering 21 hits in the process.

That comes on the heels of getting blown out 7-1 and 12-0 their first two times in here last month.

So, yeah, all the good of the beginning of this road trip has now been erased.

The big problem tonight, other than the bullpen collapsing for a second straight game, was the offense not doing anything outside of one inning. That’s now five straight games in which that’s happened — we won’t count the meaningless run Seattle tacked on in the eighth tonight when they were down nine.

Aaron Harang, despite giving up 12 hits, actually kept his team in the game down only 4-2 after five innings. But the way the offense looked, it just didn’t seem like it mattered. The two-run gap might as well have been 20.

It felt like 20 when Carter Capps and Charlie Furbush got done torching the sixth inning, giving up seven runs combined — five earned — in that frame alone.

This season is back to hanging by a thread. Any more games like this, the thread will snap.
