Another day and another loss for the Pittsburgh Pirates. After winning games one and two of this three game series, the Seattle Mariners picked up a series sweep this afternoon with a 6-5 victory in eleven innings. Errors and a lack of production in the later innings, two things that have plagued this team all year, were the story once again.
After a scoreless first inning, Seattle would plate four runs in the second inning. Daniel Vogelbach crossed the plate when Cole Tucker made a throwing error to first. Braden Bishop scored the second run on a RBI single to left center field. The final two runs came around on a Shed Long single to right. Only two of these runs were earned, as Joe Musgrove left after five innings, giving up five hits with six strikeouts and two walks.
