Mariners Mondays – Offensive explosion in Texas
On this weeks edition of Mariners Mondays on ROOT SPORTS an offensive explosion in back-to-back games in Texas is featured. The Mariners won back-to-back games vs. the Rangers by a combined score of 31-11, including a 21-9 win on May 30.
That is until the next night, when the Mariners went on an offensive tear. Justin Smoak was the star, hitting two three-run homers. But everyone contributed with back-to-back eight-run innings in the second and third.
The 21 runs scored that night were only good enough for second-most in club history, equaling the 21-9 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on September 30, 2000.
The Rangers didn’t go quietly, scoring five runs in the sixth and two in the seventh. But it wasn’t enough to stop the Mariners juggernaut. Final score, 21-8.
Catch the highlights of those two very fun games from 7:30-10pm on ROOT SPORTS. Tune in at 6:30pm for back-to-back episodes of Mariners All Access with a tribute to Mariners Hall of Famers Randy Johnson and Dan Wilson and Felix’s perfect game.
