Game 20, Mariners at White Sox

DMZ · April 28, 2009 at 12:53 pm · Filed Under Mariners 

Double-header! Woooo! 2:05 our time.

Jakubauskas v Colon in the first, and I’ll probably try to throw a second game thread up later for #21.

Also, read Dave’s post below if you haven’t already.

    Double header seems like a nice time to be carrying 12 pitchers.

    Shannon talked about it over at the Drayer Blog:

    “We have flexibility with the pitching and we needed all 12 in Anaheim. This team is built on starting pitching and pitching in general and this is the direction we are going to go in for now. As long as we can piece together the position players we will be okay.” – from Waka Waka.

  2. Red Apple on April 28th, 2009 1:17 pm

    I seriously doubt we needed 12 pitchers. It’s not as if there were a bunch of extra inning games in the Anaheim series.

    Free [position players and/or left handed power hitters]!

    Wow, I see Freddy Garcia just got released by the Mets. Has he really fallen that far off the cliff?

  3. mkd on April 28th, 2009 1:21 pm

    Six straight hours of Mariners baseball? YES, PLEASE.

  4. Bender on April 28th, 2009 1:22 pm

    Is the first game on TV?

  5. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 1:30 pm

    Is the first game on TV?

    Yep! At least on FSN… Both games are on.

  6. msb on April 28th, 2009 1:47 pm

    Sounds like Garcia is hurt.

  7. joser on April 28th, 2009 2:01 pm

    I was expecting us to just continue with the already existing “Game 20″ thread. Is there going to be a separate “Game 21″ thread, or will this do for both? Not that it matters, just climbing inside the minutia….

  8. Red Apple on April 28th, 2009 2:04 pm

    The Chief…hurt? How could a guy who could tear a huge hydrotherapy control panel out of the floor and heave it through a window get hurt? :)

  9. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 2:07 pm

    Joser, up in the original post he says he’ll probably throw up a game #21 blog later…

    *points up*

  10. tkight on April 28th, 2009 2:09 pm

    What’s up with the lack of MLB.tv?

  11. Breadbaker on April 28th, 2009 2:15 pm

    We may have more guys in our bullpen than there are in the stands of US Cellular Field.

    Note to MLB schedule maker: Please do not schedule single visits to cold-weather cities that do not have domes during the month of April. Otherwise, Ichiro will come after you with a ceremonial sword. You did this in 2007 to great disaster with Cleveland and this Chicago visit is only moderately better.

  12. Lauren, token chick on April 28th, 2009 2:17 pm

    C’mon, Grinchy!

  13. Willmore2000 on April 28th, 2009 2:17 pm

    Some slackers at home should put this game on ustream, so that us workers can slack at work, and watch the game.

  14. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 2:19 pm

    Ceremonial Swords would be a great promotion night at an M’s game– maybe Nintendo can tie it in with some new video game?

    I’m willing to bet every close call on the field by the umps that day would go our way!

  15. joser on April 28th, 2009 2:19 pm

    Ah, ok, nevermind.

  16. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 2:21 pm

    Yay, Jakabauskas isn’t overthrowing his fastball this time out and it has that nice little late tail/jump to it I was admiring in Spring. (He’s probably benefiting from the fact that butterflies don’t come out to play in 39 degree weather… *laugh*)

  17. wabbles on April 28th, 2009 2:21 pm

    Per my MLB text messages: The entire MLB draft will be on MLB.com on June 9 beginning at 3 p.m. West Coast time! (I’m little less excited about that after noticing its on MLB.com of which I’m not a subscriber.) YES!

  18. Jack Howland on April 28th, 2009 2:25 pm

    Listening to Rizzs is painful.

  19. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 2:32 pm

    In Chicago, at that temperature with the wind blowing that hard, just THINKING about the ball hitting the bat is making my hands hurt. Felix should be able to benefit in the 2nd game if he can stay warm himself.

  20. Breadbaker on April 28th, 2009 2:33 pm

    He’s probably got fewer butterflies, too, because he’s pitching in front of an independent-league sized crowd. I was at a game in Chicago in 2005 with a long rain delay and no place feels emptier than US Cellular with a thousand or so people scattered around it.

  21. msb on April 28th, 2009 2:35 pm

    So, is this one of those windy days where no one scores because they are too darned cold to hit?

  22. loki on April 28th, 2009 2:38 pm

    The M’s seem to be taking more pitches than usual. We should play in cold weather all the time!

  23. Lauren, token chick on April 28th, 2009 2:40 pm

    …except for Yuni, I’m guessing.

    It’s wacky watching the win percentage change on ESPN GameCast.

  24. loki on April 28th, 2009 2:40 pm

    Apparently Yuni didn’t get the memo.

    Edit: Ichiro! didn’t get the memo either.

  25. Gregor on April 28th, 2009 2:42 pm

    That makes 14 innings without scoring. Let’s end this soon, please.

  26. MarinerDan on April 28th, 2009 2:43 pm

    Colon is, once again, an ace!

    At least against the Mariners. In sub-freezing weather.

  27. Scottdids on April 28th, 2009 2:44 pm

    For those of you waiting on MLB.tv, the links for this game are finally up. *sigh*

  28. Scottdids on April 28th, 2009 2:46 pm

    Lillibridge looks like he’s about 15 years old.

  29. MarinerDan on April 28th, 2009 2:47 pm

    Lillibridge looks like he’s about 15 years old.

    He hits like it, too.

  30. Breadbaker on April 28th, 2009 2:50 pm

    Sims: “Griffey digging hard.”

    Image on TV: Griffey coasting.

  31. loki on April 28th, 2009 2:52 pm

    So I’m guessing the “patient” approach was limited to our first time through the batting order (minus Yuni). So, offense as usual then.

  32. JerBear on April 28th, 2009 2:52 pm

    I know – he lofted that ball into the gap, and it looked like he was just rounding first when it landed…

  33. joser on April 28th, 2009 2:58 pm

    “A Thanksgiving feast of baseball, and it feels like Thanksgiving…38 degrees and dropping. If we get any precipitation, it’s likely to fall as snow.”

    Man, I always think of Seattle as a terrible place for outdoor baseball in April (Cleveland blizzards aside) but that’s just nasty.

  34. JerBear on April 28th, 2009 2:58 pm

    Ok, I’m watching with no sound – what were they saying when they showed that weird replay of Betancourt mimicking Beltre’s throw?

    Oh, and damn, Jaku has his hook working!

  35. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 2:59 pm

    Jer-
    Just talking about how funny it was ’cause Yuni did a perfect impersonation of Beltre fielding and throwing.

  36. loki on April 28th, 2009 3:00 pm

    He was doing fine until you said that! ;)

  37. JerBear on April 28th, 2009 3:01 pm

    Thanks. I was just wondering if I was missing anything… cause that certainly was pretty funny.

  38. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:01 pm

    Jer-
    Yeah, take back the thing about “Jaku has his hook working” ’cause everyone has gotten on base since then…

  39. JerBear on April 28th, 2009 3:02 pm

    Dammit – I’ve got to learn to keep my mouth shut.

  40. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:03 pm

    Jaku puts on a short clinic of what it’s like to pitch from behind in the count in the majors… Chicago 2, Seattle 0. (I was hoping he finished that clinic last week…)

  41. Scottdids on April 28th, 2009 3:03 pm

    Maybe we can get Yuni to impersonate Beltre when he fields his own position?

  42. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:07 pm

    Scott-
    Yeah, instead of Beltre impersonating Yuni. Beltre already has 4 errors this year, tied with– ______. (One guess) That’s the biggest surprise of the season so far to me.

  43. JerBear on April 28th, 2009 3:08 pm

    Scott – no kidding.

    Oh, and to be fair, I think most of the hits Jak gave up were on his fastball. His curve still looks like it has a ridiculous amount of break.

    (see, I never learn. I probably just jinxed him again…)

  44. AssumedName on April 28th, 2009 3:08 pm

    Is it just me, or has Big Bart always owned the M’s?

  45. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:11 pm

    Jer-
    Wha? Did you just specifically jinx his curveball now? On PURPOSE? *laughs* (Kidding)

  46. MarinerDan on April 28th, 2009 3:12 pm

    Is it just me, or has Big Bart always owned the M’s?

    Not really. ~.500 record with a 4.30 ERA. He has dominated other teams (for example, the Rangers) a lot more.

  47. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:14 pm

    This would be an excellent game for Wak to use as a demonstration of why being patient, and working some walks, is important…

    Jak has given up 2 hits, but the walk he gave up led to 2 runs (at least 1 anyways, but you can’t undervalue a guy with a no hitter going having to change to the stretch when he’s pitching lights out).

  48. JerBear on April 28th, 2009 3:16 pm

    Come on, it’s not all my fault – AssumedName just jinxed the entire M’s offense!

    Also, if it’s 38 degrees there, why are there people in the stands wearing shorts?

  49. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:17 pm

    Assumed,
    I’ve always thought Colon had a great pitch for left-handed hitters though… That tailing fastball that starts out at their belt buckle and ends up comfortably over the inside corner. (ie- that Ichiro! just struck out on as I was typing…)

  50. joser on April 28th, 2009 3:18 pm

    I’m confused about Colon, actually. He’s only had 3 starts, so it’s SSS, but so far he has a fine FIP and an atrocious ERA, which suggests he’s getting screwed over by his defense, but his O-Swing% is way down and his contact rates are up, which suggests he’s making that defense work harder and he’s not the pitcher he once was. So how good is he really? (Particularly when facing a lineup with more punch than this frozen M’s offense)

  51. loki on April 28th, 2009 3:18 pm

    If at first you don’t succeed… bunt again! Go Endy…

  52. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:21 pm

    Someone could be filthy stinking rich if they invented a device that can detect the “mini sirloin burgers” ad before it comes on and shut off the TV for the next 30 seconds… *argh!*

  53. MarinerDan on April 28th, 2009 3:22 pm

    This is a pathetic effort against Bart. Dear lord, our offense has to be among the worst in the game.

  54. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:25 pm

    On a cold day like this we should really try to get Colon to throw a lot of pitche… Nice first pitch, first out… (sigh)

  55. Scottdids on April 28th, 2009 3:25 pm

    First pitch swinging.. again! Argh!

  56. joser on April 28th, 2009 3:26 pm

    Also, if it’s 38 degrees there, why are there people in the stands wearing shorts?

    It’s Chicago. These are people who go shirtless to watch Bears games in January. (They also go shirtless to attack visiting coaches, though I think that’s just the “COPS” white trash aesthetic in action. Though it might tell you something about White Sox “fans” all the same).

    Ceremonial Swords would be a great promotion night at an M’s game– maybe Nintendo can tie it in with some new video game?

    Well, they’d have to be teeny, tiny swords like the “bats” they hand out, just in case fans like the Ligue family show up. Maybe foam swords, like the giant “#1″ hands?

  57. AssumedName on April 28th, 2009 3:27 pm

    Come on, it’s not all my fault – AssumedName just jinxed the entire M’s offense!

    I was going for the reverse jinx…apparently failed.

  58. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:27 pm

    Whoa, where’s he going…? What happens with ball four? Why’s he going to first base… What’s THAT called? Weird!

  59. Scottdids on April 28th, 2009 3:27 pm

    See that wasn’t that hard. Seems only Branyan and Griffey are familiar with taking pitches.

  60. Lauren, token chick on April 28th, 2009 3:28 pm

    UpOrDown: Actually, that device already exists… check it out.

  61. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:29 pm

    USING THE ERROR TO OUR ADVANTAGE!!! Nice, boys!

  62. JerBear on April 28th, 2009 3:29 pm

    I was going for the reverse jinx…apparently failed.

    Apparently worked.

  63. Lauren, token chick on April 28th, 2009 3:29 pm

    Yes! Finally some luck!

  64. joser on April 28th, 2009 3:30 pm

    The RoJo love is in full blossom in Rizzs. After a long dark winter without his beloved ignitor, I think he’s settled on a new mancrush.

  65. Gregor on April 28th, 2009 3:30 pm

    And Rob Johnson delivers the M’s offense from 17 innings of futility.

  66. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:30 pm

    Lauren-
    That was mean… making me watch it, when I MEANT a device that makes it so I never have to see that commerical again!!!!! *slits wrists* (blood…)

  67. Lauren, token chick on April 28th, 2009 3:31 pm

    Oh crap, Yuni’s on deck.

  68. Breadbaker on April 28th, 2009 3:31 pm

    Also, if it’s 38 degrees there, why are there people in the stands wearing shorts?

    They sell hard liquor in the stands at US Cellular.

  69. Lauren, token chick on April 28th, 2009 3:31 pm

    UpOrDown: Bwahahaha! I KNOW!

  70. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:32 pm

    Guty-
    With a HUGE pop out… That was a big let down.

  71. red_devil20 on April 28th, 2009 3:32 pm

    Reading at work (quite possibly the best thing I do here) and laughing about the thought of Sean Connery on SNL saying “Teeny Ceremonial (S)words for $200, Alex”

  72. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:33 pm

    F*&@! (Yuni’s near miss…)

  73. tkight on April 28th, 2009 3:33 pm

    Good work M’s. Couple of GREAT pop ups.

  74. jephdood on April 28th, 2009 3:33 pm

    This offense is SO F’ING FRUSTRATING.

  75. UW10 on April 28th, 2009 3:34 pm

    wow, gutierrez is terrible at hitting. way to screw up the perfect opportunity guys

  76. madwlad on April 28th, 2009 3:34 pm

    What a wasted oppurtunity. Nice job gut and yuni.

  77. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:35 pm

    NOW That commerical is funny! (The Sir-Mix-A-Lot Burger King ad– especially ’cause we just got the “Booty is Booty” line at the end, which they edit out normally.)

    Hilarious stuff.

  78. BillyJive on April 28th, 2009 3:36 pm

    He makes me cringe everytime he steps up to the plate…
    Damn you Yuni…

    Also, when RRS comes back I think we should move Silva to the bullpen and make Jak our number three guy…

  79. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:37 pm

    Jak looks good this game, it’d be really nice to get him some runs. Let’s get back up to the plate and get to a tired Colon before they take him out.

  80. JerBear on April 28th, 2009 3:37 pm

    Beltre: You can’t rush Cool.

  81. JR Ewing on April 28th, 2009 3:38 pm

    I think big bart is still upset about his 2nd career start, April 9, 1997 in the Kingdome.

  82. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:38 pm

    Billy-
    Yeah, but we were all 3 feet away from loving him on that long fly just outside the foulpole.

  83. Red Apple on April 28th, 2009 3:39 pm

    Yuni: 6 pitches seen, 5 swings, 3 outs. At least that’s what CBS.Sportsline.com tells me.

  84. Breadbaker on April 28th, 2009 3:39 pm

    Two well-executed plays by our infield. I didn’t think Jose was going to get to that one.

  85. UW10 on April 28th, 2009 3:40 pm

    Yuni’s not as bad as gutierrez. even though he swings at everything, at least he makes decent contact a lot. Gut can’t hit for crap. Is his defense really worth it if he continues hitting .200?

  86. joser on April 28th, 2009 3:41 pm

    Figures Lauren would have that link handy — I’ll bet that’s how she starts her work day. When she’s not watching this.

  87. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:42 pm

    UW-
    Guty’s always hit .240 or better, if he could get to that mark, I’d be happy, but below .200 is hard to take.

  88. UW10 on April 28th, 2009 3:43 pm

    I still find it hilarious how Yuni doesn’t have a single walk all season. He really needs to get more patience. The bottom of our order is pretty bad

  89. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:43 pm

    LOL at Joser-
    I own that movie– one of the best westerns ever! (Seriously, it’s a classic.)

  90. UW10 on April 28th, 2009 3:44 pm

    anyone else watching thornton whip it in at 99?? man, we could use a lefty power arm like that in the ‘pen… bavasi strikes again, sigh

  91. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:44 pm

    Damn you Thornton. Damn you! (NOOOOOOOooooo… F’in Sirloin Burgers, I’m in hell…)

  92. madwlad on April 28th, 2009 3:44 pm

    Griffey didnt have a chance that at bat.

  93. robbbbbb on April 28th, 2009 3:44 pm

    UW10: Bluntly, yes. Look at Gutierrez’s value. On the season, he’s -4.1 runs with the bat, and +4.2 runs with the glove.

    That makes him a league-average player. League-average players do not grow on trees. Keep running him out there.

    Besides, the hitting will come. He’s 50 points off his career BABIP.

  94. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:47 pm

    robbbbbbb-
    (re: Guty) I agree… There are actually some reasons to be optimistic the offense will get better, in my mind… Guty, Griffey, Beltre, Lopez and even Yuni are all way below their norms so far.

    If the bats can warm up, this is gonna get fun this year.

  95. tkight on April 28th, 2009 3:48 pm

    Can we hit Jenks?

  96. joser on April 28th, 2009 3:48 pm

    1. Batting average is a terrible way to evaluate a player
    2. Guttierez ia a lifetime .254 hitter. The M’s knew exactly what they were getting when they traded for him, and he was judged (by them, and by many of us) to be totally worth it. He’ll likely have some streaks where he hits above .300, too, and if he’d started the season that way (the way Endy has) everybody would be raving about him (just as they have with Endy). Guttierez will likely have a streak over .300, just like Endy likely will have a streak where he can’t hit a thing, and they’ll both end up near their career averages.

    And yes, their defense really will be worth it. Or have you not been watching Washburn’s starts? He’d probably still be looking for his first win without them.

  97. msb on April 28th, 2009 3:50 pm

    Can we hit Jenks?

    He’s a big target, I’m sure someone could hit him.

  98. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:51 pm

    One bad walk for Jak, that’s it… 2 hits, 8 innings, nobody on base since the 4th inning… nice work, young man (and he might even be out there for the 9th).

  99. Jack Howland on April 28th, 2009 3:51 pm

    Anyone know the time of the shortest Mariners game ever?

    Update: 1:40 against the Blue Jays on 7/16/80?

  100. UW10 on April 28th, 2009 3:51 pm

    Ignoring batting average and any stat, Gut just looks lost at the plate though. I guess this is just my backwards way of saying we should’ve kept Jones so we could have plus hitting AND fielding. That said, Bedard has looked great so far

  101. joser on April 28th, 2009 3:51 pm

    League-average players do not grow on trees.

    Especially when they can play center field.

  102. madwlad on April 28th, 2009 3:51 pm

    I think it’s time for Beltre to hit his first hr of the year.

  103. Lauren, token chick on April 28th, 2009 3:52 pm

    Jaku’s had a pretty amazing game. Two hits over eight innings? I’ll take it.

  104. jephdood on April 28th, 2009 3:52 pm

    Great start by Jak. And he’s gonna lose again. Ugh.

    As you can see I have no confidence in our offense coming back.

  105. tkight on April 28th, 2009 3:52 pm

    I can’t take his facial hair seriously. PLEASE Mariners, find a way to rally.

  106. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:53 pm

    Great time for an error, Sox! Thanks, Josh…

  107. Lauren, token chick on April 28th, 2009 3:53 pm

    Pheeewww another error… maybe this one will make the difference?

  108. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:54 pm

    Same as a bunt– not bad.

  109. joser on April 28th, 2009 3:54 pm

    Jenks hasn’t blown a save yet this year. He blows about 1 in 7. This would be a good place for his first.

  110. Gregor on April 28th, 2009 3:55 pm

    If Lopez makes an out now, do they walk Johnson intentionally?

  111. Breadbaker on April 28th, 2009 3:56 pm

    Rob Johnson, RBI Machine, to be replaced by Mike Sweeney, professional hitter.

  112. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 3:56 pm

    Pitching around Lopez… To get to Johnson. Manager vs Manager time…

  113. tkight on April 28th, 2009 3:56 pm

    Yes – sit the guy with the best hit of the day.

  114. Lauren, token chick on April 28th, 2009 3:56 pm

    Whatthe… that wasn’t intentional, was it?

  115. KaminaAyato on April 28th, 2009 3:56 pm

    You know, I’m not sure how much to take from this game. Considering how this game has gone at light speed, and that this is a back-to-back doubleheader, and that it’s freaking cold over there, I’m thinking both teams are thinking:

    “Let’s just get this game over with as soon as possible. We have to play another one, so let’s get the first one out of the way.”

    *shrugs* Just a thought.

  116. Jack Howland on April 28th, 2009 3:57 pm

    This would be a good spot for Clement.

  117. joser on April 28th, 2009 3:57 pm

    Betancourt watching Lopez from the dugout, giant imaginary “?” over his head. “He’s on first? Without hitting the ball? ¿Que?”

    Bull! Bases loaded… Nice faux strike. (Oops, I had the count wrong– I mean, “Nice swing, Sweeney!” *at ball four*)

    Betancourt watching Lopez from the dugout, giant imaginary “?” over his head. “He’s on first? Without hitting the ball? ¿Que?”

    Hard to make me laugh down 1 in the 9th, but this did.

    Franklin and Buehlre hooked up for a 99 minute masterpiece a few years back on the south side.

  121. UW10 on April 28th, 2009 3:59 pm

    sweeney almost swung at that? WOW

  122. msb on April 28th, 2009 4:00 pm

    I’m thinking both teams are thinking:
    “Let’s just get this game over with as soon as possible. We have to play another one, so let’s get the first one out of the way.”

    well, the home plate ump is sure thinking that.

  123. Breadbaker on April 28th, 2009 4:00 pm

    I could have struck out on that pitch, too.

  124. school25 on April 28th, 2009 4:00 pm

    cant believe he hit sweeney for johnson

  125. UW10 on April 28th, 2009 4:01 pm

    pitching coach to danks: “just throw breaking balls, he’ll swing at everything”

  126. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 4:01 pm

    The ump certainly thinks we need to speed up the game (way inside)…

  127. UpOrDownMsFan on April 28th, 2009 4:02 pm

    Don’t hurt yourself Balentien! *geesh*

  128. ppl on April 28th, 2009 4:02 pm

    Balentien is a homer threat at all times.

  129. joser on April 28th, 2009 4:03 pm

    Damnit. On a warmer day….

  130. JerBear on April 28th, 2009 4:04 pm

    Damn. Hate to see a great performance by Jak go to waste. Oh well. Rack em for game two.

  131. UW10 on April 28th, 2009 4:04 pm

    if we can’t hit colon, we’re screwed against danks

  132. AssumedName on April 28th, 2009 4:06 pm

    Does Jak get credit for a CG? Hard luck, losing when your team got twice as many hits as the other club.

    Final pissed off thoughts:

    1. I hate closers with douche’y “I’m scary” facial hair

    2. Home plate umpiring has been REALLY terrible this year

    3. That EQC tracer/tracker thing is the biggest POS known to man

  134. Mike Honcho on April 28th, 2009 4:09 pm

    AssumedName –

    Yes.

    That EQC tracer/tracker thing is the biggest POS known to man

    Fortunately, those of us with computers and internet connections can ignore it because we have something much better.

  136. Mike Honcho on April 28th, 2009 4:10 pm

    That feeble effort vs. Thornton in the eighth is exactly why Wak needs to break up his LH triumverate at the top of the order.

  137. Breadbaker on April 28th, 2009 4:22 pm

    if we can’t hit colon, we’re screwed against danks

    If they can’t hit Jakabauskas, they’re screwed against Felix. So who gets to the bullpen first?

  138. naviomelo on April 28th, 2009 4:26 pm

    I think we lost this game when Lopez didn’t try to score on the Johnson double.

  139. Diehard on April 28th, 2009 4:32 pm

    Felix will take care of things! Remember his last start….

  140. joser on April 28th, 2009 5:54 pm

    First complete game by a Mariners’ rookie pitcher since Bobby Madritsch on Sept 29, 2004 (against Rich Harden).
