All season I’ve been singing the praises of the Twins whose futility has kept the Mariners out of the American League cellar. No more.
With a loss yesterday to the A’s, the Mariners (.413) are officially the worst team in the AL. They couldn’t muster a single run behind a stellar performance from Erasmo Ramirez who fanned 10 and allowed just three hits over eight innings.
“We’ve just got to get to the point where every area of our club is clicking at the same time,” Manager Eric Wedge said. “We couldn’t put an inning together. We had some good swings on the ball tonight, but we didn’t put an inning together.”
Make that 23, Eric. That’s how many innings it’s been since the Mariners scored their last run. Let me repeat that, not one run in 23 innings. They’ve also lost 5 of 6 to the Padres (.365), the second worst team in all of baseball.
Well, at least the Astros are worse (.411) and they’ll be joining the AL West next year.
