    4th ab... 1-0 count... fly out to fairly deep left... for a second, I thought Z jacked it out, but apparently he got it off the end of the bat.

    1-0 Seattle trying to close it in the 9th.

    Blown save, and the flood gates open. 3 relievers allow 6 earned runs (although the left fielder missed a catchable ball). Hindsight is 20/20 of course, but Seattle's starter cruised through 8 innings on just 89 pitches.

    And Zunino gets his first Major League RBI! (while hitting into a double play I might add)

    Z's fifth big-league AB... runners on the corners, nobody out, 1-1 count, grounded into double play. But at least he got the run home. No RBI though.

    Yeah, unfortunately there's that stupid little rule where you can't pick up an official RBI when you GIDP.

    Go GATORS!

    Your right, I got to excited when I saw he got the guy home. Still got the run in. Just made a very nice play at the plate to tag out the runner. His defense has been very good so far in the first two games.

    Z's 6th plate appearance is a 7-pitch walk. He took the 1st 5 pitches, then hit a rope down the left field line foul and just into the stands. Pitcher was careful with the next pitch and walked him.

    Z's 7th plate appearance is a HOME RUN!!! 1-1 count, he hit it to straight away center -- 400 feet! 1st RBI and it gave Seattle a 2-1 lead in the top of the 7th.

    I was too. The CF looked like he might catch it -- fortunately not!

    Z's 8th plate appearance is a strikeout. He took a 3-2 pitch on the corner.

    Seattle 3-1 going to bottom 8.
