Boone's 11th inning gland slam ruined Arroyo's Seattle Mojo. Bronson Arroyo pitched yet another gem, but this time (like many other times) his team mates let him down. Arroyo struck out 12 and allowed only 1 run over seven innings.
"He just had a real deceiving curve ball; it just kept going," Boone said of Arroyo. "I think especially right-handers he was particularly tough on. It seemed like the pitch was there, you were going to smoke it and then it just disappeared. He did a real good job with that pitch."
Keith Foulke also know as the closer left the door open for a Seattle victory.
"The way I'm pitching I couldn't be more disappointed in myself," Foulke said. "The team puts us in position to get this game tonight and I go out and give up two jacks in the ninth inning, it's just terrible, absolutely brutal."
Curtis Leskanic was tagged with the loss, and Johnny Damon has short term memory loss.
"It's the worst game we've played all year," center fielder Johnny Damon said following the loss. "This is a bad feeling. We had many opportunities. There should have been a lot more runs. We were just awful."
