G81: Another high scoring loss, 9-7 to M’s

This was a particularly annoying win. Going into the game I held a deep desire to see the Rangers sweep the Mariners. Didn’t think it would really happen, but I thought I’d take a stab and hope anyway.
Into the ninth inning, I thought I was going to get it – at least the start of it. Then Zim put the first two runners on base, making it feel like Wetteland again. However, right after that, Pudge gunned down McLemore who was trying to steal, and then right after that, Zim got a K for two outs. We were down to almost the last strike when Ichiro came up and jacked a two run homer to tie the game.
We then blew it in the 10th by bringing out Petkovsek, who doesn’t seem to handle pressure well (at least to my eyes). Oh well, a potential win for us turns into the 60th win of the season for the Mariners.
At least Mike Young continues to dazzle in the field – what a great pickup. Especially now that Loaiza has turned into Loaiza for the Blue Jays.
