Mariners Mondays – Welcome to the Show, Brad Miller
Tonight’s episode of Mariners Mondays on ROOT SPORTS looks back as Brad Miller burst onto the Major League roster with a power surge.
Miller made his Major League debut on June 28th. Over the next three months, Miller would be among the leaders of American League rookies in extra-base hits, home runs and RBI. This week, Mariners Mondays takes a look at two of his three multi-home run games.
The first was July 19, vs. the Houston Astros. Miller waited 72 at-bats before getting his first Major League homer. Number two came even quicker, in back-to-back plate appearances, to lead the Mariners with 5 RBI.
His second multi-homer game was August 13, against the Tampa Bay Rays. He started the game off with a bang with his first-ever leadoff home run, then he did it again in the 5th inning. Miller, who is from Orlando, had a cheering section at Tropicana Field to see his display of power.
Mariners Mondays airs tonight, February 10, beginning at 7:30 pm, right after Mariners All-Access. Mariners Mondays episodes will air on ROOT SPORTS during the offseason and Spring Training, building to the March 31 season opener against the Los Angeles Angels.
