The Mariners are 11-6, lead the American League West, and have a chance to sweep a two-game series from the defending World Series champs. Oh, and Kyle Lewis is back. Fresh off Monday’s impressive 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Mariners have activated their star center fielder from the 10-day injured list in time for Tuesday’s 1:10 p.m.
May allowed one more run in the fourth, but it was unearned as Chris Taylor booted a routine grounder that prolonged the inning and gave Trammell the opportunity to drive in Luis Torrens with an RBI double. In five innings of work, May was charged with four runs (three earned) and four hits. Really poor fastball execution, breaking ball was good.
It was just good to get him back. The Dodgers have consistently taken the long-view when it comes to individual games during a season. They won’t sacrifice the rest and potential health of a player just to win one game, when winning one game could cost them games down the line.
