Mariners are running behind once again

Roster Report · Mariners are running behind once again · Notes, Quotes
 

Seattle's offense, which set records for ineptitude a year ago by scoring only 513 runs scored, is at it again.

The Mariners have played 23 games and have scored more than six runs twice. After scoring five runs Sunday, the club is on pace for 549 runs for the season, which is better than last year, but still a dismally low total.

In a seven-game homestand just completed Sunday, the Mariners scored 26 runs, a little under four runs per game. But 13 of the runs came in one game, meaning that in the other six games, the Mariners scored 13 runs, or barely two runs per game.

It's not only that the Mariners aren't hitting, although the club's .226 batting average is the American League's worst. The team has drawn an AL high 92 walks, so there have been plenty of runners on base.

It's just that once they're on base, they don't often score.

"These guys have got to find a way to fight through what they are going through mentally," manager Eric Wedge said. "We've got to get back to taking advantage of opportunities."
