Last night, I got drunk on Bud Lights, caught up on the latest season of Alone, then beat my family in Texas Hold ‘Em and taking down the $40 pot. The Mariners game was on in the background, but it sounds like I didn’t miss much.
4-0 shutout, Ricky Nolasco going the distance, giving up 3 hits and 0 walks. Sam Gaviglio did okay, but obviously not good enough.
Nelson Cruz had one of those 3 hits, then injured his knee sliding into second base trying to stretch it into a double. He’s now day-to-day, and the Mariners have since made a move for his replacement: bringing up Boog Powell to DH, and sending Max Povse down to T-Town.
The Mariners send Paxton out today for the rubber match. It would be nice to win a series.
