Mariners 6, Guardians 3
Tough stretch. Very tough. A long delay. A comeback. Missed opportunities at end. With the loss, Cleveland falls to 68-64.
From Mandy Bell:
The loss stings because of the way it played out. It stings even more because the Guardians have watched the four-game lead in the American League Central they boasted at the beginning of the week get erased. A Twins victory on Sunday led to a tie atop division. But that’s not causing the team to panic.
“It’s our responsibility to find whatever positive there is and pull it out because we’re going to have to sleep quick and find some energy for tomorrow,” Francona said. “Because I don’t think Kansas City is going to feel sorry for us.”
Our all-star is slashing .302/.367/.483 this season and just turned 24 years old. Giddy up.
