Ackley, Ichiro unstoppable in Mariners' win
 
Quote:

Ichiro Suzuki racked up four hits -- including an RBI single in the 11th inning -- as Seattle's right fielder had a homecoming to remember in a 3-1 victory for the Mariners in the first game of the Japan Opening Series with the A's on Wednesday.

Second baseman Dustin Ackley drove in Seattle's other two runs with a home run in the fourth and the go-ahead single in the 11th, while Felix Hernandez pitched eight innings of one-run ball.

"More than the four hits, it was more being able to enjoy the atmosphere with the fans," Ichiro said through interpreter Antony Suzuki in the cramped Tokyo Dome visitors' clubhouse. "Being there with the same feelings, that was special to me. That's what will stay in my heart."

The Mariners received much of the Tokyo Dome support despite the A's playing as the "home team" in this two-game set, thanks in large part to Ichiro's presence. But the 12-year MLB veteran was pleased the crowd of 44,227 provided strong support for all the players in their first experience with Japanese fans.

"Seeing how they welcomed the players, they were very warm-hearted," Ichiro said. "That makes you cry."

The 2nd game with the A's was not so polite
 
Carp went on the DL with a sprained shoulder... after diving at a ball. Figgins was moved into LF to replace him.

Vargus came out after he walked two in a row. Oakland lit up the Mariner relievers without much problem.

It seems that someone has been lying about how many good pitchers the M's have.

On the other hand, at least they do not have a $9MM DH that is hitting .084, like the Angels have. It looks like they are going to have to eat the whole contract on the old timer.

The Tribe punched their ticket in the 9th
 
They were shut out until the 9th.
