    THE MARINERS WON!!!!! Luis Rodriguez had the winning walk off hit in the bottom of the 9th inning with 2 outs to win against the Blue Jays 8-7!!!

    What an at bat that was to watch! It was on the 10th pitch of the at bat that he drove the pitch deep to center field to drive in Michael Saunders to tie it and Ichiro to win it. Ichiro who had been intentionally walked, stole 2nd base to get into scoring position - a very crucial move - a game winning move! This was vey much needed, for a team that had just lost the previous 7 games.

    The M's are now 3-7 on the season, but oh what a game. Felix was hit hard today, giving up all 7 of the runs. And the M's offense was quite anemic until late, scoring 1 in the 7th inning, 5 in the 8th and 3 in the 9th!

      Well that was unexpected. I have to admit I thought there was no chance this team could come back after Felix got hammered and turned the channel. Hopefully this is the start of soem actual hittign by these guys. Season hasn't been much fun up til now.

          And the M's win their 2nd game in a row against the Toronto Blue Jays, this time under the power of young pitcher Michael "the Stank" Pineda.

          He pitched 7.1 innings, giving up 2 runs (only 1 earned) along with 5 hits, 2 walks and 7 strikeouts! And if he had just left after 7, he would have been scoreless. But Chris Ray and Brandon League were both able to come in and shut it down for them. This was League's 2nd Save of the season.

          Langerhans knocked in 2 of the 3 M's runs in the 3rd inning off his 3rd HR of the season. I say that we keep this guy in the lineup everyday to see what he can do! He hit 3 HR's all last year (60 games) and 3 so far this year. Not saying I expect 25+ out of him but 15-20 might be nice . . .

              My girlfriend changed the channel to Nurse Jackie at the end of the 7th and said: "We both know they're not going to win." I was Safeco for the less exciting game today and it was a desert full of blue jays fans, not that I mind avoiding a crowd or Blue Jays fans.

                      Went to the game last night. I wasn't sure what the outcome would be with how the M's have played this year. Fister who gave up 5 runs in his last outing, was looking pretty good last night. He still had some moments where he was a little shaky but overall, the numbers tell you how it was. 5 hits, 2 walks, 2 runs over 6.1 IP. And unbeknown to everyone else, the Mariners hitters decided to come to play last night, aided by some unsteady Detroit pitching.

                      The Mariners scored 4 runs in the 1st inning to give Fister the early lead, one which he kept.

                      Ichiro had the biggest night, going 4-5 with a walk, 2 RBI, 2 SB's and 3 runs scored! The M's eventually won 13-3 on the strength of 15 hits along with 11 walks!

                      Only Ryan and Wilson came through it all without a hit but Ryan added an RBI after being walked and Wilson scored a run after walking 3 times in the game!

                      Chris Giminez had a good night, going 2-3 with 2 runs, 2 RBI and 2 BB. He did make one bad defensive play though he did not get an error from it. Saunders was also big at the bottom of the order, going 3-5 and scoring 2 of the Mariners runs!

                      Hoping they did not spend all of their offense last night and they can show up again this afternoon.

                        Bedard is 0-4. How long until he's DFA'd or shelved on the DL?

                          The leadoff walks killed him. He's falling behind, it seems, every hitter. How long before the rust is removed ? I don't know. He looks to throwing as hard as he used to, which wasn't all that amped up to begin with. Unless he's pin point, he's in for long ab's and no apparent out pitch.

                              Big win for the M's today on the back of King Felix (and a solo HR by Kennedy).

                              Felix was in form tonight, going 7.2 innings, with 8 Strikeouts, only 4 hits and 3 walks, all on 126 pitches!

                              This was Felix's 2nd win of the 2011 season, a much needed one. All he needed to carry the club to victory was given to him in the 4th inning when Kennedy hit his 2nd HR in as many days. Kennedy has been a bright spot in the lineup lately, hitting .316 on the season so far!

                              In other news, Peguero got his 1st major league hit tonight, an infield single of all things! He certainly runs well for a big guy (6'5''). His power in the minors is well documented so far and I am excited about it but with such a big looping swing, we are sure to see a lot of SO's from him as well (something that was a problem in the minors as well. Maybe they can shorten that swing a little bit. That should only sacrifice a little power but he could make more contact and the more solid contact he makes, the better. Also worth mentioning, he did get picked off from 1B after his single after he slipped a little.

                              Though we did win the game, aside from the HR and Felix's pitching performance, there was not too much to be happy about as the M's were only able to eek out 4 hits on the night (and 1 walk). Of course, part of this is because the Athletics starter McCarthy was on fire tonight as well, going the distance in the loss, giving up just the solo HR.

                              Pineda is starting tomorrow, so here is hoping he was paying attention. Pineda has been amazing so far, showing us just what we have been expecting. And at just age 22, I definitely have high hopes for him! Imagine, having 2 Felix's on our staff! They are saying that Pineda has been watching Felix and learning from him - a very smart move on his part. Having Pineda right after Felix is also a smart move, allowing him to get a good look at what it takes to get the opponents out. So I am excited for tomorrow and the future!

                                Is anyone watching the game tonight? Looks like we may have a copy of yesterdays game (though I hope we can drum up a little more run support for Pineda). The M's are up 1-0 so far as they head into the 3rd innng.
