Aaron Harang recorded his second complete game shutout of the season for the Seattle Mariners tonight at Safeco Field. Sure, they've come against the San Diego Padres and tonight's opponent -- the Houston Astros -- but he's been lousy against the Twins and Pirates; two teams ranked amongst the bottom 10 in wRC+ in baseball.
The oft repeated joke is that the Mariners make bad pitchers look like Cy Young. Well, tonight the Astros whiffed against Harang 10 times, gathered nary a walk and could only muster two hits -- one of which was gained weakly in the infield. Why thank you, Houston.
Jokes aside and putting credit where it's due: Aaron Harang, you had yourself a nice night on the rubber.
Oh, and Raul Ibanez is now 10th in the American League in dingers. Baseball!
