Seattle Mariners’ JP Crawford Excels When Bases are Loaded




Seattle Mariners’ shortstop JP Crawford has been outstanding the last two seasons in critical bases-loaded situations. Here’s the data:



We had the right guy up at the plate at the end,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said Thursday in a postgame interview. J”P with the bases loaded — works himself into a really good count. No panic, totally under control, puts a good swing on the ball.”


Crawford as whole this season is batting .212 with 12 doubles, seven home runs, a triple, 28 RBIs and a .662 OPS.


Crawford’s hit was just one part of the most sustained offense Seattle has shown in weeks. Julio Rodriguez hit a double and a home run, Mitch Garver hit a two-run homer and the Mariners had seven hits on Thursday.


Seattle is 48-41 after Thursday’s win with a two-game lead in the American League West over the Houston Astros. It will look to get that lead back up and keep momentum in a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays starting at 6:40 p.m. PT on Friday at T-Mobile Park.
