st 26 | slugfest at Salt River Fields

Mariners 8 | Rockies 9

As ST winds down some who have had good-to-great springs (such as Ramirez, Wilhelmsen and League) are starting to falter (maybe just anxious to get the party started, for real!) and George Sherrill, who has had his typical sucky spring, is just rounding into form. Granted, today, THREE of the NINE runs allowed were UNearned – as there were FIVE errors (ugh!)

Even though it wasn’t enough because of the pitching struggles, look at those hitters hit!

  • Every starter had as least one hit – yes, even Carlos who had FOUR (including a 2-run homer!
  • There were also THREE doubles and TWO triples
  • Kawasaki continued to be TORRID – currently leads all of MLB in BA this spring

oh, btw ~ Jesus wasn’t in the game but, not to worry, we are assured that he is none the worse for wear after his “beaning” yesterday (whew!)

Here’s a bit of a shocker…
Shawn Kelley was optioned to Tacoma earlier this morning. Huh. He’s had a decent spring.

A tweet from Shannon spoke of Junior in the clubhouse giving Peggy a bad time for getting hit by Jamie, twice!
