Boxscore: Game 91

I understand the first half and second half don’t end/start at the all-star game but it always feels that way to me. I understand there are less games to be played now after the break than there was at the start of the break. But in my mind this is a point where you have to evaluate yourself and ask the question are we, are the Seattle Mariners, really in contention.

It’s a rhetorical question. Because all of three (maybe a few more) people make that decision.

Getting swept by Anaheim stings and even more so being that Pauley yet again let us down. He got one ground ball in the 6 batters he faced and walked two. It’s a terrible way to give the game up again and to be honest I don’t love the struggles it has me slightly concerned.

Halman continues to confuse me. I think this is just what he does…

Ackley is awesome (5-16) against the Angels, scored 3 runs and had 2 extra base hits. Love it.

Mariners were 1-9 with runners in scoring position Sunday. This caps off a series in which the team was a combined 8-32 (.250) with runners in scoring position and plated all of 9 runs. This isn’t going to win ball games and it’s not going to win series.
