On this day in Mariners history ….

  • 1995 – After homering in the 5th inning Ken Griffey Jr. makes a spectacular catch crashing into the outfield wall to rob Baltimore’s Kevin Bass. The result was two fractured bones in his left wrist. Jr. underwent surgery the next day and was out until August 15.
  • 2001 – Aaron Sele runs his record to 7-0 with a victory over the Royals, tying the Mariners record for best starts ever.
  • 2002 – Jamie Moyer allowed just one run in eight innings in an 8-1 win over Baltimore to run his career record to 13-1 against the Orioles.
  • 2013 – Jason Bay hit a 2-out, walk-off single in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Mariners a 4-3 win and snap an 8-game losing streak. Raul Ibañez hit a game-tying home run off Joe Nathan in the bottom of the 11th.

 

First inning

Chris Young worked a 1-2-3 inning

James Jones led off with an infield hit, Michael Saunders dropped a bunt down for a hit when Skaggs threw to the wrong guy covering first base. Cano lined a single up the middle to score Jones. Saunders advanced to third and then scored on Smoak’s ground ball to first that he thought got past Freese at third. M’s lead 2-0.

Mariners 2, Angels 0

Second inning

Young walked Freese to start the inning, but with one out Aybar lined out to Smoak at first, and he stepped on the bag to double off a frozen Freese (see what I did there?).

The M’s tack on three more runs. Dustin Ackley singled with one out. He stole second and then moved to third on Franklin’s soft ground ball to short. Jones scored Ackley as Aybar booted a soft ground ball at shortstop. Jones stole second by like 12 steps and then scored when Saunders tripled on a laser to right. Cano came up with his second RBI single of the day to score Saunders.  All three runs were unearned for Skaggs.

Mariners 5, Angels 0

Third inning

Young issued a two-out walk to Calhoun, but got Kendrick  to ground out to second to end the inning.

M’s go down 1-2-3 with Seager and Ackley both had hard hit outs.

Mariners 5, Angels 0

Fourth inning

1-2-3 for Young

1-2-3 for Skaggs, who seems to have settled down a little

Mariners 5, Angels 0

Fifth inning

Another 1-2-3 inning for Young.

Cano with his third hit of the game. His batting average is up to .333. But Smoak hit into a double play and Zunino flew out.

Mariners 5, Angels 0

Sixth inning

Young gave up his first hit of the game – a one-out single to Calhoun – to break up his no-hit bid. But that was the extent of any damage. He got a fielder’s choice and then struck out Trout to end the inning.

M’s go down 1-2-3 again.

Mariners 5, Angels 0

Seventh inning

Pujols led off the inning with a solo homer off of Young. After getting Freese to pop out, Young walked Ibanez, which ended his day. He got a nice ovation as he came off  the field. Furbush came in and got a pair of flyball outs to the inning.
