Angela @ Mariners - Game 9 Mariners 11 Angels 3

Honoring the great Jackie Robinson!!

Nothing makes me smile more than a good butt kicking of our division rivals the Angels. Some quick thoughts...
Washburn was sick as a dog in this one but pitched a heck of a ball game.
Chavez and Griffey had back to back solo HR's in the 5th inning. Jr's was his 400th home run in a Mariner uniform. How exciting for him to get that one at home.
Ichiro tied former Japanese league legend Isao Harimoto for most hits ever by a Japanese player. And Ichiro did it exciting fashion when he hit a grand slam in the 7th inning. Not bad for his first game of the season!
Another great game by the M's. I am really enjoying watching these guys play.
