M’s destroy Rangers, 14-2
The Mariners bounced back from a two game series sweep by San Diego in resounding fashion, beating the Texas Rangers 14-2. Seattle’s bats came out hot as they jumped on Texas starting pitcher Taylor Hearm early, scoring five runs in the 1st inning on four hits. The Mariners added two more runs in the fourth, and then two more runs in the fifth to make it 9-0 and they cruised to victory from there. The 14 runs scored was a season high from Seattle.
Tim Beckham went 2 of 4 including a 2-run home run, while Ryon Healy went 3 of 5 with 2 doubles and 3 RBIs. Starting pitcher Marco Gonzales had another quality start for Seattle, going 7 innings and allowing 6 hits and no earned runs.
The Mariners improve to 17-11 on the season, and up next they continue their four game series with Texas tomorrow night.
