>>Astros Bounce M's With Big Ninth
I was more interested in watching Mike Zunino make his debut than the game itself. Which is good, becuase the Mariners let another get away. (Actually I was more interested in the Stanley Cup thriller to be honest.) The Astros' bats awoke in the top of the ninth inning as they scored six runs and pulled out a 6-1 win over the Mariners at Safeco Field. Seattle closer Tom Wilhelmsen was charged with five of the six runs and blew his fourth save falling to 0-and-2. Starter Jeremy Bonderman dealt eight shutout innings with five strikeouts. Zunino goes 1-4. The M's travel to Oakland for a series that starts tomorrow.
