M’s fall 6-5 to the O’s despite 3 homers

The Mariners bats have been showing some life as of late, but homeruns by Ichiro, Michael Saunders and DH Mike Sweeney were not enough to pull out a victory against the Baltimore Orioles in today’s matinee.

Felix Hernandez gave 7 solid innings and was lifted with a 5-1 lead. Brandon League, who hadn’t allowed a run in nearly six innings surrendered five runs to even his record at 3-3 on the year.

    Todays game at beautiful Camden Yards in Baltimore started out like a dream and ended up another nightmare as the Mariners bullpen could not hold on to a 5-1 lead in the 8th and Felix Hernandez’s solid pitching performance was wasted. Unlike most of the previous losses this year our offense stepped up and we had a season high of 3 home runs. Michael Saunders, Ichiro, and Mike Sweeney all connected for homers and this loss was another heart-breaker.
