I thought I'd summarize last night's game from a musical perspective. Here are the songs that sum up the themes of Game 68:
"Back to Life, Back to Reality"by Soul II Soul-After tearing up interleague play, the Mariners came back to the AL and have lost 2 straight to a last place team.
"Double Trouble" by Otis Rush-Richie Sexson hit into two rally-killing double plays.
"Truckin" by The Grateful Dead-Adrian Beltre continues to slowly get himself together. An RBI, and another walk. He is taking a page from Guns N Roses book and showing more "Patience" at the plate.
"Young at Heart" by Frank Sinatra. OK I can't stand Sinatra, but I wanted to give the kids a shout out. Lopez/Reed/Morse went a combined 2-for-9 with an RBI and walk. Ol' Man River Borders got the start over Rivera though.
A tough couple of days for Mariners fans after coming off the Mets sweep. But, Mama Said There'll be Days Like This
