Felix Hernandez scattered six hits and Jesus Montero broke a tie with a solo home run in the seventh inning off A.J. Burnett to help the Seattle Mariners beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 Wednesday.
Finally settled in Seattle, Aaron Harang appears ready to return to form. Two days shy of his 35th birthday, he allowed two runs in six strong innings of a 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday, proof his nomadic April is firmly behind him.
Former Pittsburgh Pirates owner Kevin McClatchy says, “Is anybody dumb enough to believe that the whole reason they want their shot is to get into the shower with a bunch of other guys?”
The Seattle Mariners announced Tuesday the organization has purchased the controlling stake in ROOT Sports to form a new regional sports network partnership.
With a little time, Starling Marte and the Pirates could make waves throughout baseball.
