Opening Day; Texas 2 Mariners 5

Opening Day has come and gone (side note, the countdown was suppossed to be untill the Mariners' Opening Day but something got screwed up) and the Mariners won 5-2.

Nice to see the rain hide out for a little bit. I still miss Arizona though. Pictures are coming soon.


Game Notes
  • Dave Neiheus, who was elected in to the Hall of Fame, threw out the first pitch.
  • Erik Bedard pitched 5 innings in his debut. He struck out five, but walked four and gave up one run which was a homerun. He threw 1He got a no decision.
  • Sean Green pitched 1.2 innings of relief for Bedard and picked up the win (1-0), striking out two. He walked one and gave up two hits.
  • JJ Putz struck out two earning his first save of the year. Eric O'Flaherty and Mark Lowe both picked up holds.
  • Ichiro started the year 0-3 but scored two runs and was walked once.
  • Jose Lopez went 2-4 and drove in two runs.
  • Adrian Beltre and Jose Lopez were both caught stealing. There's Mac's game plan at fail. I doubt that's correct grammer, but my old English teachers probably aren't reading this blog.
  • Game time temperature: 50 degrees (F), roof closed.
