Game thread, Mariners vs. Blue Jays, Aug. 5: Mariners lose, 3-1

The Mariners couldn’t hold a 1-0 lead with six outs to go and fall on the strength of a three-run eighth by Toronto.

JAYS EIGHTH: Jays tied it on a Lawrie triple and Reyes single off Iwakuma. They loaded the bases against Medina, then got a two-run single by Mark DeRosa off Oliver Perez for two runs and a 3-1 lead.

MARINERS SEVENTH: Justin Smoak breaks the deadlock with a leadoff homer, a towering blast to right. But the Mariners squandered a chance for more when Seager, with runners on first and third, grounded into inning ending DP. 1-0 Mariners.

BLUE JAYS SEVENTH: Jays get their first runner to third with two outs but Macier Izturis grounds out. Will anyone score tonight?

MARINERS FIFTH: M’s get two aboard with one out but can’t score as Seager and Morales pop out. Still scoreless.

BLUE JAYS FIFTH: Two-out single by Lawrie is Toronto’s first hit since Reyes led off the game with a single, but Thole grounded into a force. 0-0

BLUE JAYS FOURTH: Iwakuma walked Bautista and Encarnacion, who have 54 homers between them — the first time all year he’s walked two in an inning — but got Lind to ground out to end the inning. 0-0

MARINERS THIRD: M’s had a chance to strike first against R.A. Dickey in a scoreless game, putting runners on first and third with one out. But third baseman Brett Lawrie made a nice sprawling stop of a Morales grounder and converted a double play — albeit Morales was one of the few guys who wouldn’t have beaten the throw.

As has been the case in recent games here against the Blue Jays, fans from Canada are out in full force. It probably will feel like a home game for the Blue Jays, in fact.

Warning: I’m not going to be manning the blog for awhile because I have to finish my Montero story. So talk amongst yourselves.
