The inning belonged to Randy Messenger who did nothing to prove he deserved it. After a 4 pitch strikeout to start the inning.....Messenger gave up back to back walks (on 9 pitches), followed by back to back singles to give up 2 runs. Again the Mariners helped him out a little as Mike Morse tried to stretch his 2 RBI single into a double and was thrown out at 2B by Clay Timpner for the 2nd out of the inning. Messenger finished the inning off with a fly out to LF. 20 pitches and only 9 strikes.....not good. It actually could have been worse.
