What a nauseating loss...

Take a 1 run effort from Joel Pineiro and waste it.

Ichiro on base every time - waste it.

The bullpen, defense (get the out, Beltre!), and a lack of clutch hitting all combine to cost the Mariners a game they should've won.

Wilson Valdez did his worst. Runners on 1st and 2nd, one out, he grounds into a double play. Jeremy Reed on first and no outs in the 7th, Valdez pops up the bunt. Bottom of the 8th of a 2-2 game he drops a pop up in foul territory. A couple of pitchers later the same batter hits a home run to give the O's a 3-2 lead. And somehow he gets to be the final out in the game on an inept attempt at a check swing. C'mon Grover, at least try! Send up Gil Meche to bat! Anyone! Ugh.

Jose Lopez, D'Angelo Jimenez, Pokey Reese, someone, anyone...
