Rangers vs. Mariners Thursday Game 1 Recap
Rangers edge Mariners 4-3 Thursday night
It's getting tougher and tougher to watch the Mariners leave men on base early in this season, but that's exactly what happened again tonight. Joe Ortiz (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings and Joe Nathan worked a perfect ninth for his third save as the Rangers handed Seattle its third straight loss.
Felix Hernandez was unable to pick up his 100th win and the M's went down 4-3 to the Rangers at Safeco. He did however grab his 1,500th career strikeout in the first inning. Seattle OF Michael Saunders (shoulder) went on the disabled list one day after crashing into the right-field wall and the Mariners recalled Chavez from Triple-A Tacoma.
The Seattle Seahawks Legion of Boom were on display tonight. Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas were in the front row, and Sherman threw out the opening pitch.
