Mariners' Keynan Middleton: Tagged with loss as openerJuly 22, 2021 | 03:59 AM
Middleton (0-1) took the loss Wednesday, surrendering five runs on five hits and a walk over one inning in a 6-3 loss to the Rockies. He struck out one. Deployed as an opener for the first time in his big-league career, Middleton looked decidedly uncomfortable in the role as Colorado smoked a barrage of line drives off the right-hander, with the biggest blow being a bases-loaded double by Dom Nunez. Middleton now has a 10.38 ERA for Seattle since the beginning of June, managing only a 4:4 K:BB through 8.2 innings in that time, and he'll remain in a low-leverage role until he can find some consistency.
