5.3.06 M's @ ChiSox

Pablo Ozuuuuuuuuuuuuna!

Last nights game seemed to be cruising along until the Sox made it interesting in the 7th. Crede's bases loaded, nobody out AB earned a .449 P Value, which is the highest we've seen this season thus far.

Move to the eighth... Garcia and Politte apparently weren't satisfied with an 'easy' win as Garcia opened the door and Politte held the Mariner's hands on the way through.

But never fear, Guardado was warming in the M's pen. Glorious! After getting two outs, Pablo Ozuna came to the plate and hit his 1st MLB HR . Guardado left him one and Ozuna destroyed it.

Fast forward to the 11th. Jeremy Reed was playing CF from the Fan Deck and it showed and Ozuna turned a simple single into a double when Reed didn't get to the ball quickly. Then Uribe dropped the winning shot just over Bloomquist and in front of the M's OF, which was again playing very deep.

Ozuna's WPA was the single best of the season; as he was only involved in 2 plays and they were both huge spots.
