Game 1: Logan Gilbert has a career night, and the bats do just enough. Final: 0-2 Mariners

Logan Gilbert was fantastic in this one. Logan went 7 innings giving up 0 runs and 1 hit, while striking out a career high 12 batters. He was also the first RHP to ever strike out Juan Soto 3 times in one game. Logan Gilbert is having a great year with a 3.66 ERA, 1.024 WHIP, 138 K's, and 13 quality starts. Man I am glad Jerry and Justin decided to not trade him.

The Mariners bats did just enough as they were able to squeak out 2 runs agains the Padres in this one. Cal Raleigh was awarded a walk with the bases loaded on a pitch clock violation by Ray Kerr, that brought in the first run in the 5th inning. Then Dylan Moore had 2 out triple in the 6th to score Tom Murphy. Brash and Munoz would shut the door on the Padres in the 8th and 9th Inning, Mariners win 0-2.

Game 2: Emerson Hancock makes his MLB debut, as bats come alive late. Final 1-6 Mariners.

Emerson Hancock was impressive in his Major League debut. Going 5 innings, giving up 1 run and striking out 3 Padre batters. The 1 run is all the Padres would get as the Mariners bullpen would come in for the last 4 innings and not let the Padres score 1 more run.

Mariners hitting came alive late in this one as they scored 5 of their 6 runs in the 8th inning. Cal Raleigh got it started with an 8th inning homerun that had the same feeling as his clinching homerun last year. France, Marlowe and Moore would each knock in another run in the 8th inning. Mariners win 1-6. Mariners look to stay hot as they take on the Orioles on King Felix Mariners Hall of Fame induction weekend.
