Last night when I was able to tune in to the Mariners game Seattle had a 4-2 lead in the 7th. Then Mateo took over and promptly coughed up that lead. My immediate thought: Here we go. Just like last year.
Then something beautiful happened. Betancourt pounded a shot over the wall, scoring two, a triple by Ichiro scored another run, and Beltrť sacrificed Ichiro home. Suddenly the Mís were up 8-4. Thanks to Brandon Morrow, all of 22 years old, they didnít look back.
Now the Mariners are 2-0 for the first time since 1996, and though its stupid early in the season, taking the opening series, from the Aís of all teams, is huge. Tonight Miguel Batista hopes to deliver the sweep.
Other News: The Lady Vols are national champions again; Huskies center Spencer Hawes will announce whether heís jumping to the NBA by the end of this week; the Seahawks signed defensive tackle Craig Terrill to a one year deal; and the Seattle Storm are looking to draft a guard or wing player in todayís WNBA draft.
