Texas lost the opener of the four-game series on Monday night, but won the last three.
The Seattle Mariners will try and overcome Wednesday night’s humiliating loss when they send Erasmo Ramirez to the mound Thursday in Arlington.
Jim Johnson struck out two and closed it out this time after losing back-to-back outings to begin with the year with Oakland, sealing the Athletics’ 6-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.
Brad Miller hit two homers, Erasmo Ramirez pitched seven innings of six-hit ball, and the Mariners beat Los Angeles 8-3 Tuesday night for their second win of the season.
Erasmo Ramirez just saw what his offense is capable of after viewing a ten-run win against a good Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitching staff. Ramirez also has a lifetime 2.41 ERA in three starts over the American League West rival.
It’s Opening Day. It’s Felix Day. And there’s reason to buy into the promise a new season brings. There is hope. And as Andy Dufresne once said, hope is a good thing.
Erasmo Ramirez has been named the number two starter in the Mariners starting rotation by manager Lloyd McClendon, according to MLB.com’s Greg Johns.
Robinson Cano lined a single into center field on the first pitch he saw in a Seattle uniform, part of a two-run first inning that sent the Mariners over the San Diego Padres 7-1 on Thursday in a Cactus League opener.
We’re boring down on February, the free agent market for hitters has nearly dried up entirely and the Mariners continue to be tied to Nelson Cruz. Why? Maybe because the reporters are just connecting dots; the Mariners need offense and Cruz and Morales are two of the very best options available that could make some kind of difference. Maybe the Mariners have legitimate interest in Cruz. Why? I haven’t the foggiest.
Jack Zduriencik does not see the Seattle Mariners making another splash signing before the start of spring training after an offseason of big moves highlighted by the signing of second baseman Robinson Cano.
