Bad Luck Game Bobbled Early, Skaggs Eats Innings Anyway

Bobbled away early without a bobblehead giveaway to match...

Final Score in Seattle: Angels 1 Mariners 5

Karl Marx said that history repeats itself, first as tragedy and second as farce. Well Tyler Skaggs turned that axiom on its head. The bottom of the first inning was a semi-comical farce with two runs scoring in almost hilarity: The frame began with back to back bunt singles which, had a blade of grass or two been shaped differently, would have been easy outs. then a single and a ground out scores them.

2-0 in the bottom of the second and Skaggs has a man on 3B with two outs. Erick Aybar ganks a bouncer and the flood gates score three (unearned) runs. At that point all we can hope for is that Skaggs can eat some innings. He does, throwing seven with eight strikeouts and only two earned runs. The Angels do not manage a hit until the top of the sixth and Albert leads off the seventh with a solo home run and Skaggs is still in there longer than starter Chris Young.

Michael Kohn pitched the eighth and Wade LeBlanc had to warm up in the pen but should still be ready to go against the Leftyville Lineup of the M's on Thursday.

Mike Trout got on base to start the top of the ninth against Fernando Rodney but Pujols groudned into a double play and the next out came and that was that. Whatever. Turn the page.
