Mariners' lefty James Paxton leaves game with injury
Paxton, 28, left Thursday's game with a strained left pectoral muscle in the seventh inning. "Obviously, It's disheartening news". "It's been a insane season, really it has been, with all of the injuries". To put ourselves in the position we're in right now, a lot of it has had to do with James Paxton.
To get six good innings from Ramirez was a plus.
OUR PREDICTION: The over has cashed in seven of the last nine meetings between these two teams, is 15-5-1 in the last 21 meetings in Seattle, and has hit in four of the Mariners' last five games overall. He wound up with a no-decision.
Albers had the 3rd best ERA (2.61) in the International League where he was pitching for the Braves AAA affiliate.
Paxton said he woke up feeling pretty good on Friday and was a bit surprised by the diagnosis.
According to the AP's Tim Booth, Paxton will undergo an MRI on Friday to determine the extent of the injury. The southpaw is serving his second stint on the 10-day DL after sustaining a forearm strain earlier in the season, and worked up to an impressive 2.78 ERA, 2.5 BB/9 and 10.4 SO/9 following a relatively quick recovery period.
"I feel like I've had enough of those". But Seattle's shaky pitching situation was exposed and the Angels took advantage against the young right-hander Andrew Moore. The 2017 edition of the Mariners certainly hasn't been short of talent, but they've only just started to look like they can turn the talent they do have into a legitimate run at the playoffs. Paxton went 6 1/3 innings before getting injured on Thursday. Lawrence allowed a single to C.J. Cron and a two-run home run to Luis Valbuena, which tied the game at 3-3. "It's different when it's in August and you're fighting for something here and you've really battled your butt off to get in this spot", Servais said. Their below average starting pitching is going to make a playoff run slightly more hard, but they certainly have the offensive firepower and bullpen depth to make it happen.
