A Night for Suzuki and Teixeira

I wanted to post this in Bleacher Report, but I thought otherwise. But I have posted something related: Thou shalt not steal.

Though I haven’t posted this in b/r, I still want my “article” posted so I’ll have it here. Comments, suggestions, and anything of the like are welcome. Thank you.

A Night for Suzuki and Teixeira

It all started with almost an hour of delay because of rain.

Mark Teixeira’s missed catch from Suzuki allowed the Seattle Mariners’ right fielder to earn a double RBI.

Ichiro Suzuki also earned a 2-run double in the fourth inning when
centre fielder Melky Cabrera missed Suzuki’s flyball to his territory.

As if those were not enough, another base was made available for Suzuki
in the ninth inning when Aceves missed to catch the ball from Mark
Teixeira, but it was accounted as an error of the first baseman. It
would’ve been the first out of the inning.

Next in line to Suzuki was first baseman Russell Branyan, who on the
first pitch of Aceves had hit all the way to the restaurant of the
Yankee Stadium.

The 2-run homer of Branyan was the last hit of the Mariners. It was
also the last stay in the mound of Aceves, who replaced CC Sabathia and
brought the last out of the sixth inning. David Robertson replaced
Aceves.

Determined not to let any more mishaps or whatever chance for the
Mariners, the next three hitters were all kept out of the bases by Mark
Teixeira.

Jose Lopez popped out to Teixeira followed by DH Mike Sweeney who
grounded out to Robinson Cano then to the first baseman. The last
Mariner who grounded out was the first one to hit a homer, Franklin
Gutierrez who hit right back to David Robertson.

The last two runs of the ninth inning gave the Mariners an 8-4 win and kept the Pinstripers from sweeping the series.

The truth is I still wonder if I should post this in Bleacher Report.
