Mariners Weekly Rundown: Who’s Hot and Who’s Not
The past seven days have been very kind to the Seattle Mariners and their fans. The week began with a series win in Cleveland against the Indians and ended with Seattle taking two of three from the Los Angeles Angels. Overall, the Mariners went 4-2 this week and 6-3 on the road trip.
The Mariners scored a total of 30 runs in 6 games, good for an average of 5 runs per game. Seattle also received some quality pitching performances this week. The M’s allowed 3.5 runs per game, and 21 runs overall.
This past road trip was fun to watch for fans, as the Mariners finally played up to the potential we all believe they have. They’ve proven to be a strong road team in 2016, but their 1-5 record at home is concerning to say the least. Thankfully, they will get a chance to improve on their poor home record this week as they welcome the Houston Astros to town on Monday and will host the Kansas City Royals this weekend.
Today, we will take a closer look at how individual players fared this week. Obviously, with it being such a successful week, there were plenty of M’s who had great showings. We will begin the list by discussing Nelson Cruz, who helped carry the Mariners’ offense.
