Monday’s start against the Angels was a rough one for Aaron Harang, who allowed four earned runs on 12 hits over five innings and exited long before the Mariners would lose by a final score of 11-3.
But to hear him describe it, his undoing was a Carlos Triunfel throw that pulled Michael Morse off of first base with one out in the second inning. The Angels scored on a sacrifice fly one batter later before Harang allowed a two-run home run to Josh Hamilton.
“Obviously, that play with the throw that pulled Mike off the bag, if that play goes differently, I get the next hitter to fly out and it’s a totally different inning. Probably getting through the next inning and still going out for the sixth inning, maybe even the seventh,” Harang told reporters afterward.
“So it’s crazy how one little play like that can change the whole aspect of a game.”
Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby explain their issue with Harang’s comments in the video below.
