Final: Brewers 10, Mariners 5

The Mariners had three errors – two from third baseman Kyle Seager – and their offense fell mostly silent against Brewers’ starter Kyle Lohse. Seattle starter Joe Saunders wasn’t great, but he deserved better than his stat line: 9 runs, although only 4 were earned. Seager now has four errors in his last three games.

End first: Neither team managed a hit in the first inning. Mariners 0, Brewers 0.

End second: A real pitcher’s dual so far in this one. Joe Saunders and Kyle Lohse each working with no hitters right now. Only through two innings, of course, but both have looked extremely sharp. Lohse, by the way, is 7-7 with a 3.23 ERA this season. Mariners 0, Brewers 0.

End third: The Brewers take advantage of two Seattle errors and put up two runs in the top of the third. In the bottom of the inning, Kyle Seager makes up for an error by drilling a single up the middle that brings in two runs and ties the game at 2. Mariners 2, Brewers 2.

Top fourth: The Brewers rough up Joe Saunders for three runs in the top of the fourth. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke was ejected for the second time this season after arguing if Carols Gomez should have scored after a fan reached over the wall down the line to touch the ball. He lost the argument, but it didn’t matter much. The Brewers still tacked on three runs. Brewers 5, Mariners 2.

End fourth: Michael Morse leads off the inning with a walk, but the Mariners follow with three straight strikeouts. Brewers 5, Mariners 2.

End fifth: The wheels fell off in this one. Saunders exited after 4 1/3 innings. He gave up 9 runs, although only 4 were earned. The Brewers have 10 hits, and when you combine that with three errors, you get a night like this. Brewers 10, Mariners 2.
