Seattle Mariners Game 101: Red Sox 6 Mariners 3

Ichiro robs J.D Drew of a 3 run HR. This game could have been much uglier otherwise. Felix didn't have his best stuff in this one. The team can't expect him to be perfect, they have to help out. The Mariners had their chance to win this one but as usual they could not bring a run home when it mattered the most. They had 2 on with 1 out and Johjima hit into a double play to get Papelbon out of trouble. Then in the bottom of the 12th after the Red Sox had scored 3 in the top of the 12th the Mariners loaded the bases but Vidro was up and ended up making the final out of the game. Who cares that Ibanez and Vidro both hit HR's earlier in the game? They end up being HR's that mean nothing. Sure it looks good beside your name, but at the end of the day if it didn't help the TEAM win then who really gives a crap.

The boys are in Toronto for a 3 game set this weekend. Batista *GROAN* takes the hill tonight. Any guess on how many runs he gives up in the first couple of innings? I say 6 runs and 4 walks. Don't worry folks, only 61 more games of this torture to endure:)
