Mariners | Stephen Pryor dominating
Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge has been comfortable using RP Stephen Pryor in higher leverage situations in the back of the bullpen, including in the ninth inning Tuesday, Aug. 14. "He's been really good," Wedge said. "I like his poise on the mound. I like the way he competes. I thought last night was big for him as he continues to move forward. The guy hits that leadoff double, we leave him out there, and he has to make big pitches in a tough situation. It was so important for us to keep it to one run - so important. I wanted to give him every opportunity. Notice, I didn't get anybody up. I wanted him to do it, and that's what he did." Pryor has held opposing batters hitless in 18 plate appearances with runners on base so far.
