The Seattle Mariners kicked off their road trip in disappointing fashion. After a dismal end to a three-game series at home against the Guardians, they lost two out of three games to the Brewers, ending in a 12-4 disaster. Here are some of the guys that still managed to play well despite the uphill battle.

Mariners' Best Hitter: Dylan Moore

.429/.600/.571, 3 H, 2B, 2 R, 2 BB

A consistently beneficial bench presence, Dylan Moore has always been an underrated hitter. His ability to play pretty much any position has allowed him to be plugged in whenever and wherever. This weekend, he filled in at first base while Ty France sat out for the entirety of the set on paternity leave. Originally coming in as a pinch hitter for Luke Raley in the first game, Servais must've liked what he saw since he started Moore for the remaining two games.

He got on base a total of six times, accruing three hits, two walks, and a hit by pitch. He also hit his first double of the season off of a Colin Rea cutter. It had an exit velocity of 105.8 mph and was scorched 319 feet to left field. He still barrels up the ball extremely well and with the current fluidity of the Mariners roster, he could find even more playing time this year.

Honorable Mention: Luis Urías

.333/.333/1.000, 2 H, 2B, HR, R, 2 RBI

Urías continued his strong start to the season with two extra base hits including his first home run of the season and with the Mariners. While staring down Hoby Milner in the ninth inning if the second game, Urías hammered a Hoby Milner changeup 385 feet to left field, logging an exit velocity of 106.5 mph.

With his underwhelming performance in 2023 and persistent injury concerns, there were lots of questions about whether he'd be worthy of a starting spot at third base. With the relatively big shoes of Eugenio Suárez to fill, he's done admirably thus far, slashing .176/.300/.471 over his first 20 plate appearances. He's yet to find his consistent groove but don't count him out just yet.
