Mariners vs. LA Angels: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 1

Munenori Kawasaki

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the series versus the L.A. Angels. After three quality starts in a row, Jason Vargas finally cracked. The Mariners starter was lackluster, needing 106 pitches to get through 5.2 innings. Brandon League has been putting his horrible month behind him. The Mariners made a great pick in the draft last night, taking catcher Mike Zunino.

Mariners vs. Chicago White Sox: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 1

Dustin Ackley + Kyle Seager

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the series versus the Chicago White Sox. We’re not sure what’s wrong with Felix Hernandez, but it’s time he starts working the kinks out. The King had a tough start tonight, needing 85 pitches to get through just 5 innings. Eric Wedge said that Brandon League was no longer the closer. He came in in the sixth.

Mariners vs. Texas Rangers: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 3

Mariners vs. Rangers

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third M’s game of the series versus the Texas Rangers. This was one of the craziest nights of baseball in recent Mariners memory. Kyle Seager was 4-6 on the night with 4 runs and 2 RBI. Jesus Montero had an amazing night, going 3-4. Justin Smoak kept his hot streak rolling, as he had 3 hits, 1 walk, 6 RBI and 2 home runs. The M’s won 21-8.

Chone Figgins

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the fourth M’s game of the series versus the L.A. Angels of Anaheim. It’s just bad. Kyle Seager is mired in a bit of a slump. Seattle’s bullpen has been bad enough throughout the season so its fitting that with the score at 3-2 in the 9th Shawn Kelley goes ahead and gives LA that insurance run. Justin Smoak closed out today’s series going 2-4.

LA Angels vs. Mariners: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 2

Angels vs. Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second M’s game of the series versus the L.A. Angels of Anaheim. The M’s are 9-13 on the month, despite winning four of their eight series. I’ll be the first to defend the potentials of Michael Saunders and Alex Liddi, but players with a combined .311 OBP should not be batting one and two.

Alex Liddi

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third M’s game of the series versus the Texas Rangers. Without Alex Liddi, this win doesn’t happen. Without Tom Wilhemsen, this win happens and is far less stressful. What a crazy last game of the series. Kevin Millwood has had a very up and down season. But the last two games he’s been GREAT.

Mariners vs. Rockies Game 3 Recap

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third M’s game of the series versus the Colorado Rockies. Jesus Montero, Justin Smoak and Mike Carp all hit homeruns on Sunday. Nice three game set. Perhaps more exciting than the sweep is that the Mariners finally head home to Seattle. Monday kicks off a 7-game home stand against the Angels and Rangers.

Mariners vs. Cleveland Indians: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 2

Mariners vs. Indians

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second M’s game of the series versus the Cleveland Indians. Tough day for the arms. Steve Delabar started things off with a blown save in the 8th. After Seattle finally recaptured the lead in the 11th, they handed the ball over to closer Brandon League. He was horrible. Ichiro Suzuki has just 5 RBI in May. Not good from the #3 spot.

Mariners vs. Boston Red Sox: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 1

Seattle Mariners vs. Boston Red Sox

Justin Smoak

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third M’s game of the series versus the New York Yankees. Kevin Millwood finally had a good outing, going 7-innings deep giving up 1 run. The bullpen had quite the day. Eric Wedge ended up using five different pitchers to cover the last 2-innings of the game. Only one of those pitchers managed to pitch more than 0.1 of an inning.

Mariners vs. N.Y. Yankees: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 1

Mariners vs. Yankees

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the series versus the New York Yankees. Felix Hernandez had won his three previous starts at the new Yankee Stadium but one bad pitch lost his club the ball game on Friday night. Mike Carp is hitting a mere .130/.200/.304 on the season with 1 home run. It’s easy for Seattle fans to feel jaded by Raul Ibanez.

Detroit Tigers vs. Mariners: MLB Baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 2

Kyle Seager, Seattle Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the second M’s game of the series versus the Detroit Tigers. Kyle Seager kept his hot streak alive while Kevin Millwood kept his cold streak ice cold. The Mariners couldn’t jump on Verlander early enough to give themselves a chance to comeback in this one.
