SHARE Guillen: No gripe with Thornton

SEATTLE — Matt Thornton suffered his third loss in relief, giving up four of the Mariners’ seven hits in the last two innings, but manager Ozzie Guillen defended his decision to not bring in Sergio Santos in the ninth.

The Mariners were trotting a lot of left-handed hitters to the plate, and besides, Guillen liked the way Thornton was throwing.

“Thornton threw the ball good,” Guillen said. “I’m very happy the way he throw the ball. Strikeout a few [two] people. But I like the way he throw. I don’t want to come here and bring Santos and all of a sudden I’m going to leave my bullpen empty. I don’t have another chance. Thornton threw the ball good.”

“I like the way he throw the ball today.”
