Brandon Maurer decent over 4 1/3 innings Sunday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2014) Mariners starting pitcher Brandon Maurer lasted just 4 1/3 innings in his season debut Sunday against the Marlins, but he pitched well despite throwing just 63 pitches (36 strikes). The right-handed hurler allowed just one run on two hits and two walks, while striking out four.

Maurer began his afternoon with a strikeout of Christian Yelich in the first inning. He had 1-2-3 innings in the second, third and fourth innings.

Maurer ran into a bit of trouble in the fifth inning, however, and was lifted after Donovan Solano's RBI single with one out. Solano was the third straight runner to reach base. However, reliever Dominic Leone was able to strand both inherited runners after replacing Maurer.

The Mariners have an off-day Thursday, which means the team could skip Maurer in the rotation. If he is not skipped, then his next start will be Saturday against the Rangers.
