Mariners@Twins - Game 3 April 8, 2009 Twins 6 Mariners 5
5 innings, 8 hits, 6 earned runs, 1 BB, 2k's, 2 HR's
It is only one game and certainly too soon in a season to write anyone off. Even CC Sabathia was terrible for the Yankess on opening day. Daisuke Matsuzaka was terrible for the Red Sox yesterday in his first start of the season. So let's not throw Carlos too any wild alligators anytime soon. However, Carlos was not good enough for his team to win. End of story and he has to be better next time out. Considering it is the home opener against the Angels it won't be an easy task.
The team itself played a decent game. Lopez and Branyan each had their first HR's of the season. It is really exciting to see Jose off to a great start. Chris Jakubauskas was outstanding in his first appearance of the year going 2 innings with one BB one hit and 2 K's. Not bad. Mark Lowe also had a nice appearance in the 8th inning striking out 2.
