Mariners Pre Game Notes April 15, 2009

So excited to have Ichiro back in the lineup tonight. Can't wait to see how these guys look with him considering how well they have played without him.

Pitching Match ups

Seattle - Jarrod Washburn (1-0, 0.00 ERA)

If Washburn can pitch even half as good as he did last week against the Twins the Mariners could be in good shape tonight. Another win against the Angels would be huge for the M's this early in the season.

Oakland - Jered Weaver (1-0, 0.00 ERA)

Weaver pitched outstanding only 1 day after good friend and fellow teammate Nick Adenhart was killed in a car accident. My guess is Weaver is going to come out with fire in him tonight to win another for his friend and to try and turn things around for the Angels.

Tidbit of the day:

Endy Chavez is just the eighth player in franchise history to begin the season with at least an eight-game hitting streak. Former second baseman Joey Cora is the all-time leader with a 16-game hitting streak coming out of the gate in 1998. Gorman Thomas hit in nine straight to start the '86 season. David Segui ('98), Ken Griffey Jr. ('97) and Dave Henderson ('83) had eight-game hitting streaks.
