Mariners Mondays – Kuma handles the Angels
Tonight on Mariners Mondays on ROOT SPORTS a pair of starts by starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma in which he dominates the Angels in two late-seasons starts one month apart.
On Sunday, September 2, Iwakuma pitched 7 1/3 scoreless innings and Carols Peguero and Jesus Montero hit solo homers off the Angels ace Jered Weaver to give the Mariners a 2-1 win.
In the second game, October 2, Kuma was the happy recipient of some offensive support as the Mariners beat the Angels 6-1. Iwakuma allowed six hits and struck out seven, including Albert Pujols three times and won his third consecutive start. The offensive outburst was keyed by Kyle Seager’s first inning solo home run, his 20th of the season.
