Game 16, A’s at Mariners
The first place Mariners (!, 8-7) host the A’s. Harden pitches for Oakland, Franklin pitches for the Mariners. I’m sure tonight many fans will be surprised to find themselves handed a “KOMO 1000 News Mariners Window Cling” featuring the new Mariners slogan “What a Show!”
Tomorrow is Ichiro! bobblehead night. You should probably expect longer lines for that one.
TV: Fox Sports Northwest (“Where (region or team name) fans come first”), standard radio.
I have great hopes that this game will produce the finest comment thread of the day.
Interesting note: the M’s press notes today instructions for Jim Street: (“you, Jim Street, can register for the 2005 giveaway…”) I’m not sure if that’s intentional or not, but I did a double-take when I read it.
Rainiers: Rainiers host Sacramento (the “Riverrats” as Fairly called them last night) at 6:05. Andrew Lorraine starts against Jimmy Serrano. You can enjoy the fine broadcasting of Mike Curto on the internet or on KHHO 850.
