The Seattle Mariners Report

by Bill Chuck on September 14, 2013

The Mariners 2-1 loss in 10 innings to the Cardinals spoke volumes about Seattle’s season.

The inconsistent Mariners pitching held the Cards to four hits.

The inconsistent Mariners offense produced 10 hits and just one run.

The inconsistent Mariners defense allowed the winning run to score as Pete Kozma dashed to the plate on catcher Mike Zunino‘s passed ball with the bases loaded and two outs in the 10th.

The Mariners have lost a franchise-record 13 games in extra innings, including their last six in a row and were mathematically eliminated from the postseason.

At least…

  • Mariners radio play-by-play man Aaron Goldsmith called a game in his hometown for the first time.
  • And long-time talented Mariners scribe Larry Stone is now a columnist for the Seattle Times.

So the season wasn’t a total loss.
