Mariners vs. San Diego Padres: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 1

Franklin Gutierrez

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the interleague series versus the San Diego Padres. Jon didn’t find much “good” left to report on in this game, so he highlighted that Ichiro Suzuki once again had a solid night at the plate. Hopefully the 38-year old Ichiro is proving he still has something left in the tank.

Michael Saunders

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the interleague series versus the San Diego Padres. The M’s looked lost all night then the 9th inning happened. Michael Saunders homered to kick things off. Four batters and one wild pitch later and the Mariners were just 1 run down with a man on and Jesus Montero at the plate. Then a hit, or a bunt or…UGH.

LA Dodgers vs. Mariners: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 1

Dodgers vs. Mariners

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the first M’s game of the interleague series versus the L.A. Dodgers. The Mariners needed just 1 run, and without it this magic night never happens. Kevin Millwood aside, I think this night really goes to the bullpen. Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, Lucas Luetge, Brandon League and Tom Wilhelmsen combined for 3 innings, 2 walks, 3 Ks and, of course, o hits.

The Mariners starter was lackluster, needing 106 pitches to get through 5.2 innings. Brandon League has been putting his horrible month behind him. The Mariners made a great pick in the draft last night, taking catcher Mike Zunino.

Eric Wedge said that Brandon League was no longer the closer. He came in in the sixth.

Felix Hernandez had won his three previous starts at the new Yankee Stadium but one bad pitch lost his club the ball game on Friday night. Mike Carp is hitting a mere .130/.200/.304 on the season with 1 home run. It’s easy for Seattle fans to feel jaded by Raul Ibanez.

Mariners vs. Tampa Bay Rays: MLB baseball love ‘em & hate ‘em Game 1

Miguel Olivo

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Jonathan Irwin reports on the third M’s game of the series versus the Tampa Bay Rays. Today was a rough day to be Felix Hernandez, yet again.

Miguel Olivo finished tonight 2-4 with a home run but was injured.
