Mariners 10, Astros 4
W:Walker (1-0)L:McHugh (4-7)SV:Wilhelmsen (1)
Four homeruns by the Mariners and two by the Astros. This game seemed like it may be the Astros for the taking at the end of the 1st. Springer launched a dinger to the railroad tracks in Minute Maid Park in the bottom of the first, this gave the Astros the lead, McHugh then coughed up 2 runs by a homerun by Zunino. Marwin got the lead back for McHugh with a solo homeun.
Saunders and Miller each hit homeruns off of McHugh to give the Mariners the lead for the game. But the Mariners weren’t done with homeruns. Cano hit one in the 7th. That would then be it for homeruns in the game but not the end for runs. The Mariners put up 2 runs to the 1 by the Astros for the final score.
Marwin played some pretty good defense and Altuve was his usual good player.
Not a good night for the Astros, so here’s to hoping they do better on Tuesday. Check out Mr. Happy’s preview for more info on the series.
