Even the Angels picked up their third run-when Jose Briceno took Matt Festa deep at the eighth inning.
Ramirez got hauled after issuing a walk to Vogelbach, leaving two on with two outs for Tito Polo. Braden Bishop then provided the Mariners with the insurance run, pounding a lining into centerfield, plating Vogelbach from next base.
The Mariners took advantage, as Joe DiCarlo ripped a double that cleared the bases. Subsequently Dustin Ackley plated another run with a single. Ackley later scored on an error to put the Mariners up 9-2.
I attribute that this last minute change for the Mariners cold start offensively. Peters let four base runners on the course of four innings and successfully held Seattle scoreless. We’d get to see just a little lefty on lefty crime, when Daniel Vogelbach drew a stroll in the first inning.
They further cut into the lead if Wyatt Mills sacrificed a two-run homer to Cesar Puello.
The M’s didn’t win. They did not lose either
Here is Mariners prospect Gerson Bautista’s ultimate pitch. Looked quite debilitating based off his response.
- The Braden Bishop-Jake Fraley Japan Series roster spot battle wore on today. Bishop won the day with an RBI single, while Fraley was held hitless; nonetheless, its worth noting that Fraley only saw abandoned pitchers.
- Dan Vogelbach continued his strong spring operation, walking two.
- The Mariners really C’d the Z today, walking seven times while only striking out six times.

The ninth inning continued to acquire scarier. Mills reloaded the foundations and walked into the Angels’ sixth run of this game. Subsequently Jack Anderson took over with the bases still loaded and no one out. Anderson couldn’t navigate out of difficulty without surrendering the M three run lead. Consequently, the game finished at a 9-9 tie.
I’m gonna be honest and say I had the recap finished at this point. As I thought it was over. It wasn’t.
There hasn’t been an update about the condition of the injury for this point.
Albert Pujols lofted a gentle pop up down the first foundation, which found the outfield grass to put Calhoun in scoring position. I suppose you get a few of those when you’ve got over 3000 hits in you career.
