Morning Recap – Montgomery’s 1-Hitter

Mike Montgomery threw a 1-hitter last night, not allowing a hit until 1 out in the 7th inning.

Mike Montgomery threw a 1-hitter last night, not allowing a hit until 1 out in the 7th inning.

Mariners rookie starting pitcher Mike Montgomery threw a 1-hit shutout last night, his second consecutive shutout (5-hit shutout 6/23 vs. KC).

Here are some pretty cool facts about Montgomery’s 1-hitter:

  • 1-Hitter – Recorded the 10th 1-hitter in club history, and first since Jarrod Washburn on July 6, 2009 vs. Baltimore…was the 13th 1-hit shutout in club history.
  • Back-to-Back Shutouts – Just the 7th time in club history a pitcher has thrown consecutive shutouts, and first time since Freddy Garcia July 1 & July 6, 2001.
  • Rookie Back-to-Back Shutouts – First rookie pitcher in MLB to throw back-to-back shutouts since Cleveland’s Jeremy Sowers in 2006…12th rookie since 1980 to throw back-to-back shutouts.
  • 6 Starts, 2 Shutouts – According to the Elias Sports Bureau, became the fourth pitcher over the last 40 years to record at pair of shutouts within the first 6 starts of a career: Fernando Valenzuela (1981), Orel Hershiser (1984) and Jeremy Sowers (2006).
  • Scoreless Innings – Will take a 18.0 scoreless innings streak into his next start.
  • What a June – Made 6 June starts, going 3-2 with a 1.62 ERA (8 ER, 44.1 IP)…8th-lowest June ERA in Mariners history (min. 5 GS) and led all MLB rookies in ERA for the month of June (K. Graveman, OAK, 2nd with 1.93 ERA)…2nd-lowest ERA by a rookie pitcher (min. 5 GS) in club history in any month trailing only a 1.45 mark by Matt Young in May 1983 (1.45 ERA).

Here is a video recap of Montgomery’s 1-hit gem:

And some social media posts that helped ‘Mike Montgomery’ trend nationwide last night:

Mariners send two to Pitch, Hit & Run National Finals

14 year Haley Loffer (left) and 10-year old Trevor Cogley (right), both of Hayden, Idaho, are headed to Cincinnati for the Pitch, Hit & Run National Finals next month during MLB All-Star Week.

14 year Haley Loffer (left) and 10-year old Trevor Cogley (right), both of Hayden, Idaho, are headed to Cincinnati for the Pitch, Hit & Run National Finals next month during MLB All-Star Week.

Two competitors from then Mariners Pitch, Hit & Run Team Championship last week have qualified for the National Finals of MLB’s skills competition.

Ten year old Trevor Cogley, and 14 year old Haley Loffer, both from Hayden, in North Idaho, will travel to Cincinnati, host of the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. The competition will be on field at Great American Ball Park on Monday, July 13 prior to the Home Run Derby.

Haley, who competed in the 13-14 Year Old Girls division, went to the National Finals in 2013 when the competition was at Citi Field in New York. Haley, who will be a sophomore in high school next year, plays on an 18-and-under travel team called North Idaho Xtreme.

Trevor, who goes to Atlas Elementary, plays on the Hayden Little League All-Stars. His mom says he’s been “smiling from ear to ear” ever since he found out he made the finals.

Both Haley and Trevor were among the approximately 625,000 kids who participated in Pitch, Hit & Run competitions across North America. They advanced through four levels of competition and emerged as one of the three top performers in their age groups.

Pitch, Hit & Run is part of “PLAY BALL,” MLB’s initiative aimed at getting kids to participate in all kinds of baseball and softball activities.

Golfers can tee it up at Safeco Field

Golf SimulatorResearch shows that 42-percent of Mariners fans are also golfers. It is with that in mind that a new 3D golf simulator has opened at Safeco Field. The “About Golf” simulator is a high-tech training tool that is operated by the pros at Gregg Rogers’ Golf Performance Centers of Bellevue.

The simulator is inside a 600-square foot structure located just behind the centerfield bleachers. It features a 120-foot wide curved screen that can project images from some of greatest golf courses in the world including the “Old Course” at St. Andrews, TPC Sawgrass, TPC Scottsdale, Spyglass, Pebble Beach and more.

High-speed 3D cameras capture data on the club and the ball at 2,300 frames per second. The data helps project how fast and how far the virtual ball will travel.

Golf SimulatorThe simulator will be open on all Mariners game days starting two hours before first pitch. Fans can take a swing for a $5 fee, a portion of which will be donated to Mariners Care, the team’s non-profit foundation. You can also enter a closest-to-the pin contest at every game for $20 for three swings. Scores are tallied after the 8th inning of each game and the winners will receive prizes such as items autographed by Mariners players, free golf lessons or club fittings.

This week, for the grand opening, the winners of the closest-to-the pin contests will go head to head against each other on Sunday during a hole-in-one contest. If any of the four finalists makes a hole-in-one, he or she will win $25,000.

In addition to taking some practice swings, you can also get instruction from Gregg Rogers’ pros. And if you’re looking for a set of clubs to give you an edge, you can get a consult by Gregg Rogers’ award-winning custom fitters.
