It's late so this will be brief.

A rare banner day at the plate for the M's overshadowed the defense masking a bad game by Jason Vargas. Vargas got away with a LOT of line drives and walks today in stringing together seven strong innings. The 1st inning was bad, the 2nd... mehhhhhh, the 3rd was bad, the 4th was good, the 5th was bad (and nice job snaring that comebacker, Jason), the 6th wasn't too hot and the 7th to his credit was good. Many point to Doug Fister being all smoke and mirrors, but really of the upstart SPs, Jason Vargas has been the one tiptoeing through line drives and flyballs thanks to good outcomes. He has had decent games per EXERA, but between he and Fister, Vargas is the more likely to regress over time. Thankfully, his defense was terrific and Nick Blackburn was even worse than he was.

The defense deserves credit for an exceptional, almost flawless game. Save for Delmon Young swiping a base off Eliezer Alfonzo, everyone for the M's positively contributed in the field. Casey Kotchman had a great game at 1B, Josh Wilson deserves credit in light of recent struggles for a great game at SS, and Michael Saunders undid a bad day at the plate with a good day in LF.

Chone Figgins really needed a good game at the plate like he had today, as did Jose Lopez. To a lesser extent, Casey Kotchman really needed a big hit to fall for him as well and he got it late.

Good job Mariners. Another 73 games like this before October 3 and maybe you'll make the playoffs.
