Mariners Pre Game Notes April 10, 2009


Ryan-Rowland Smith has been eagerly awaiting tonight's game. Ending last year in the rotation and on a really high note RRS is ready to pick up where he left off. It might not be the easiest of tasks considering this start comes in Oakland against division rivals. A's off season acquisition Orlando Cabrera tormented Mariners pitchers when he was the shortstop for the Angels. Lets hope RRS can keep Cabrera and guys like Matt Holliday quiet tonight.

Tidbits of the day:

--Griffey's first Major League hit occurred at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. He doubled to left-center off right-hander Dave Stewart in the first inning

--The Mariners went through the four-game series against the Twins without making an error, the first time that's happened since 2006

Pitching Match ups:

Seattle Mariners -- Ryan Rowland-Smith
Oakland A's -- Brett Anderson
