M’s Win

Thanks to the wonder of spare corporate tickets from Rose’s office, I got to see the Mariners beat up on the Red Sox (and the fans bleat on the umpire).

Postcards of a cloudy sky.

The Mariners got out to an early lead, nearly making it 3-0 in the second when the home plate ump made a questionable call on a tag. He called out, the crowd bleated boos on him for the next inning or so and sporadically thoughout the night.

The Red Sox caught up in the 6th and made it 4 all. Then the Mariners got a shot, one on, the Sox missed the first half of a double play at second, then mishandled a grounder to short to load the bases. Ichiro came up to the plate, fowled off 5 or 6 pitches (even one into the upper deck) and then belted one to right.

All of a suddden, it’s 8-4.

And then the Sox load the bases and get one walked in. At least they were nice enough to reciprocate in the bottom half of the inning.
