Jason Vargas. Soft tossing left hander with a career earned run average right around four. When a pitcher of this shit bag’s pedigree shuts down your favorite baseball team, rage seizures will almost certainly follow. In the previous game, the Phillies offense beat Felix Hernandez with their fifth starter on the mound. Fast forward to the next day and they can’t hit a journeyman pitcher who has barely been hanging around the major leagues for the last five seasons.
Vargas three hit the Phillies with Ryan Howard tallying 2/3 of the teams hit output. The Mariners got two runs on dunk base hits into left field thus wasting another great start from Cole Hamels.
Cole became the third fastest pitcher to record 1,000 strikeouts.
See you in hell Jason Vargas.
