Slammed In Seattle To Start 2nd Half
Laffey (5-6, 3.61 ERA) had perhaps his worst outing since being called up from Buffalo. The left-hander gave up two walks, nine hits and eight runs over 3 2-3 innings -- though only three of the runs were earned.
Shortstop Jhonny Peralta's error on a two-out grounder with two on in the second inning led to a five-run uprising.
Jamie Burke hit a two-out single and Laffey plunked Yuniesky Betancourt with a pitch before Ichiro Suzuki reached when Peralta misplayed his grounder -- loading the bases.
Laffey walked Willie Bloomquist to force in a run, keeping the bases loaded. Ibanez unloaded them with a shot to right for a 5-0 lead.
Jose Lopez's three-run homer with two outs in the fourth made it 8-1 and finished Laffey.
Jensen Lewis (4.41 ERA) pitched 2 1-3 scoreless innings and Juan Rincon (6.54 ERA) finished with two scoreless innings.
Oh, by the way ...
Down the coast in San Francisco, CC Sabathia pitched another complete-game victory for the Milwaukee Brewers, beating the Giants, 9-1. He struck out 10 and allowed four hits and no walks.
In three starts since being dealt July 7, Sabathia is 3-0 with a 1.88 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 24 innings.
