Seattle Mariners Game 11: Mariners 8 Angels 5

Well that was a good start against the one team we HAVE to play well against. Good performance by Felix last night going 6.2 innings and giving up 4 earned runs. The highlight of his night was probably striking out Mariners #1 nemeses Vlad Guerrero 3 times. The bullpen performed well enough to keep the victory intact for Felix.
Raul Ibanez had a great night blasting 2 solo home runs as well as a RBI double. Great game for him. The rest of the team pitched in as well (except for Vidro, shocking I know) to give the Mariners a leg up on the Angels for these next two games. Just winning this series would be wonderful, but if they can find a way to sweep them it will go a long in setting the tone for these 2 teams early in the season.

Carlos Silva takes the mound for the M's tonight and Jon Garland goes for the Angels. The Mariners will need another strong starting pitching performance tonight to keep them in this game. The Angels can put a lot of runs on the board quick.
