Mariners 3 | Angels 5

Unfortunately, Felix’s Court didn’t have much to feel “royal” about but, it was great to see the biggest one ever – 4 whole sections!

It was turn back the clock night…

all the way back to 1955…
since the M’s hadn’t been “born” yet, the current M’s donned Seattle Rainiers uniforms. While I loved the old uni’s (especially the high socks!) the red was a bit disconcerting – I am so conditioned to root AGAINST red.

Felix didn’t appear to have his “A” stuff but, he pitched adequately through FIVE…
giving up FIVE hits, ONE walk and a SOLO shot to, who else, Alber. Then came the 6th which stunned pretty much everyone, including Felix, when Callaspo hit a grand slam home run. Amazing how the tide can turn after a couple of singles…

The bullpen duo of Delabar and Kelley was effective…
kept ’em in it and picked up Felix for three complete innings

As per the series, not much offense was mustered…
although it was good to see Justin hit another Smoak-bomb
and, Ackley and Carp each with a SB and an RBI

At least it was a beautiful day at The Safe…

After the game, my salve was a glass of Tempranillo and Strawberries Devonshire…
(OK, it was just half ‘n’ half from QFC, but it did the trick 😉 )

Can we avoid spittin’ bristles tomorrow?!?
