Mariners: RHP Dan Altavilla (shoulder) threw a bullpen at Double-A Arkansas on Tuesday and is expected to begin a rehab assignment there Thursday.
All he needed were nine more outs against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Jays DH Josh Donaldson led off the eighth with a double to right-centre. Garcia moved in to gather the ball, but his throw to first was off line and Segura took second on the throwing error. Russell Martin slashed yet another double then, with two out, Luke Maile hit a single to score Martin. In 469 and two-thirds innings, he's allowed just 424 hits and struck out 476.
"Russ did a great job".
"For me, it's really just an approach", Paxton told ROOT Sports in an on-field interview postgame, "really trying to force contact, trying to challenge guys with my stuff instead of trying to be so ideal and pick at the corners". They know, I know it. "But they held us in check pretty good too, early - came to life late". That ended the hitting carousel and evened the three-game series at 1-1.
"The whole team was waiting for Pax to come in off the field after doing all the interviews and what-not", Servais said. "He's been doing it ever since he got here". Bundy, who didn't retire any of the seven batters he faced, became the first pitcher in modern major league history to give up four home runs without recording an out, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He had recently returned from serving in the Canadian military during World War II, missing two full seasons, and pitched his gem in his first start of the year.
Still with baseball, Roberto Osuna was trending, after he was arrested, charged and put on leave by the MLB. This AL showdown gets going at 7:07 p.m. ET and fans can watch the game on RTNW and RSN. The Mariners are off to a 20-14 start, hanging in the tough American League West race with the Astros and Angels, but they need Big Maple to make 30 starts. Haniger is hitting.289/.369/.612 with 10 home runs, 28 RBIs and 19 runs scored, while Gordon (.353/.375/.446) is up to one homers, eight RBIs, 21 runs and 15 steals. Garcia entered Wednesday 1-2 with a 6.00 ERA: Happ is tied for the team lead in wins with Tyler Clippard, a reliever the Blue Jays signed off the scrap heap in the offseason. Five times this season a starter has been pulled after six innings of no-hit ball. The key to his performance was being able to get out of the first inning with only one run against. Yuli Gurriel added a two-run double against Yusmiero Petit that extended his hitting streak to 11 games.
Seager then took a couple of hops before hurling the ball to Ryon Healy at first base or the out. "It's simple, but it's not quite that simple".
"He always seemed to be a step ahead of most other people, I got the sense from being around him all those years".
