The Game

The M’s opened the scoring in the bottom of the 1st to take a 1-0 lead.  In the top of the 2nd, Joey Gallo tied it with a mammoth home run.  He killed it.  Other than that, M’s starter Chase deJong threw a solid 6 or 7 innings.  The game lagged for a while, it was freezing, and I was tempted to go home unusually early.  Glad I stuck around.  Buoyed by contributions from Tuffy Gosewich and a bunch of other dudes, the M’s exploded for 7 runs in the bottom of the 7th to take a 8-1 lead.  I think the Mariners will put together more of these monster innings during the year.  If Segura and the other guys in the 1-2-3 slots can get on, we’ve got Cano-Cruz-Seager 3-4-5, and then if the bottom of the order guys can keep things going we can really get on a roll.  Texas hit a late home run but the M’s bullpen held on (whew!) for the 8-2 win.

Overall, awesome autos from Darvish, Choo, and other Rangers, cool Felix bobblehead, and great win by the Mariners!
