Hits, Game/Season: 2/2
Runs Batted In: 1
Left on Base: 4
Notes: A solid 2-for-4 start, with a walk and a pair of stolen bases (one of which shown above); also got caught stealing and grounded into a double play… New skipper Eric Wedge notched his first Mariner win while reigning Cy Young winner King Felix picked up where he left off last year with a 108-pitch complete game… I listened on the radio, missing Dave Niehaus all the while. Hearing Rick Rizzs and Ron Fairly all year is gonna be tough. One down, 161 to go.
Next: Game 2 at Oakland, 6:05 Saturday. Ichiro needs just two hits to break Edgar Martinez’s franchise record of 2,247 hits.
