Rockies 9, Mariners 6 at Peoria Stadium

Notable

Justus Sheffield pitched three innings, allowing one run on two hits with four strikeouts. He flashed a fastball that sat 92-93 mph with a swing-and-miss slider and an improved changeup.

While Sheffield looked solid, the pitchers that followed him did not, specifically Wei-Yin Chen, Zach Grotz and Erik Swanson, who gave up a combined eight runs on eight hits in 3 2/3 innings pitched.

Player of the game

Kyle Seager went 3-for-3 with two doubles, a RBI and a run scored. Seager lashed baseballs to left-center and right-center and pulled one down the right-field line.

Quotable

“Day off tomorrow for everybody. I think we need it. We’ve been getting a lot of work done. We’ll come back after that with a good stretch of games before we have our next day off. Pitchers will pick it up and you’ll see our position players play a little bit deeper in games as we move forward.” — Scott Servais.

On tap

The Mariners have Tuesday off. They will return to action on Wednesday afternoon, traveling to Tempe to face the Angels.
