In the proce s, Gonzales collided with on-deck batter Shohei Ohtani, and both players were visibly shaken up.Gonzales would stay in the game but found trouble the following inning when he was struck with a line drive in the ankle/foot area. He once again would stay in the game, but ultimately gave up two runs on an RBI double to David Fletcher two batters later.Seattle cashed in an insurance Anthony Gose Jersey run when Sam Haggerty laced a double down the right field line, scoring Surez. The trailing runner, Winker, was nabbed at home plate after ignoring an emphatic "stop" sign from third base coach Manny Acta.Fletcher struck again with an RBI groundout the following inning, making the score 6-3 in favor of the Mariners. Gonzales was done after six innings, finishing his day with seven strikeouts and three earned runs surrendered.Andrs Muoz took over in the seventh and posted a fantastic frame, getting Ohtani out for the second time this series.
