Seattle Mariners Game 83: Mariners 7 Blue Jays 6

Everyone on the team had a least one hit except for Lopez who was 0-5. But at the end of the night the only hit that mattered was the one Willie had in the bottom of the 9th. With 2 on Willie smacked the ball into the center field gap for the game winning RBI.

Let us not forget the HR Beltre hit that had him wondering just how the heck he hit it. Considering he practically had to swing above his head to make contact it is no wonder he was confused. He definitely keeps it interesting. Richie also hit a HR which was his first in over a month.
Aussie Ryan Rowland-Smith got his first start of the season. He was cruising through the first 3 innings giving up only one hit. But then it all fell apart for him in the 4th. His night ended in the 4th when he gave up 3 earned runs. He definitely deserves another start, I really think he just needs a good 3 or 4 starts to extend his stamina and get his arm used to throwing that many pitches as opposed to just 1 or 2 innings out of the bullpen.
