LoMo Walks it Off in 11
Logan Morrison is other worldly right now. He may not be quite on the Nelson Cruz level yet, but he is close. LoMo drove in half of the M’s runs tonight, and clubbed a walk-off home run deep to center field. Morrison finished the game 2 for 5, and raised his batting average to .245.
LoMo has seen his batting average climb nearly .100 points over the last 10 games. He has been on a tear, homering 4 times and driving in 8 runs. Morrison has broken out in a big way, and hopefully his performance is sustainable. LoMo is a fan favorite, and it was great to see him hit such an important home run in front of the Safeco Field faithful.
I do not mean to toot my own horn, but I picked Logan Morrison as my “pick to click” prior to tonight’s game. I said he would come through with the game winning RBI, and thanks to LoMo’s walk-off dinger, I was right! I also predicted the M’s would win the series opener by a final score of 4-3.
