Welcome back baseball, welcome back!

Mariners 8 | Giants 7


First Opening Day that I’ve missed in 20+ years 😦 (2020 doesn’t count)

bittersweet . . .

  • island life makes night game attendance difficult – it’s a trade-off 😉
  • baseball is back and there are fans in the stands and there are better days ahead for all

it ain’t over till it’s over . . .

  • rough outing for Marcos – solos shots were killer…
  • going into the bottom of the 8th, the M’s only THREE hits – all doubles (Seager, White, Moore) and their ONE run was a sac-fly by Moore
  • then they scored SIX in the 8th to take the lead by ONE
  • Montero gives up a solo shot to tie it in the top of the 9th and the M’s go in order – to extras we go!
  • so, we get to see the new rule in full effect – starting the inning w/a runner on 2B
  • super catch by Mitch to end the top of the 10th
  • and, whodathunk – Fraley w/a bases loaded walk to WIN!!!

Really looking forward to following this season ~ and attending my first game since 2019 on April 18th!

There will be lots to catch up on lots to learn and re-learn 😉

Welcome back baseball, indeed.
