How Was The Game? (May 31, 2014)

Safeco’d.

Mariners 3, Tigers 2

It was a short night for Drew Smyly (8 GS, 48.1 IP, 4.10 ERA, 4.52 FIP, 0.3 fWAR), but the bullpen had his back and held the Mariners at bay. Smyly went 4 and allowed three runs, but his command was rough even though he didn’t walk very many. Cabrera hit another big time home run and the Tigers punched another one through on a wild pitch to Castellanos that scored Jackson. They put some good swings on the ball in the 7th and 8th before the ball died on the track, but the real threat came in the 9th. Avila walked and Kelly singled, but Romine failed to get a bunt down and Davis struck out to set up Kinsler. With the game on the line, Kinsler bounced out and set up a rubber match Sunday with Max Scherzer (11 GS, 72 IP, 3.00 ERA, 3.12 FIP, 1.6 fWAR) toeing the rubber.

The Moment: Cabrera hits a huge home run to left.
