Box Score Bytes - Game 38

- The Rockies (15-22) have a 5.67 ERA at home -- worst in the majors. In the last 11 in Denver, it's at 6.29.

- Rox are handcuffed by a guy we got off the scrap heap last year, only to allow him to revive his career, and then we allow him to sock it to us tonight.  Two lousy hits tonight against the 37 year old.  Punchless versus Seattle...

- Rox struck out 7 times against Millwood who only allowed one walk.  5th pitcher to throw a shutout, allowing two hits or fewer, against the Rockies in Colorado, the first since Roy Oswalt threw a 1-hit shutout for the 2008 Astros.

- Meanwhile White who had a decent Coors outing has lost his last 3 starts dating back to last year.

- Interesting tidbit as White was teammates with Seattle's Seager and Ackley at North Carolina when they went to 3 college world series.

- The Mariners improved to 2-6 on their 10-game, four-city road swing. Shows just how pathetic Rox are anymore especially at home.  Rox have lost their swagger.  Teams like this struggling on the road and in the old days Rox would have just feasted on them but in today's world they come in and its like a vacation or batting practice.
