Sweeney: “It was a wonderful game.”

Factor in what had to happen for the Mariners to win today:
-A bullpen had to throw 7 2/3 scoreless innings to keep the team in it.
-The offense had to come back from 3-run deficits twice, including in the 13th inning.
-Jason Vargas, who was in triple-A last year and had not pitched in the majors since July 2007, had to hold the A’s scoress for 2 1/3 innings.
-And the Mariners needed a run in the ninth and got it on Kenji Johjima’s first home run of the year.
“It was a wonderful game,” Mike Sweeney said.
He hit his 200th home run in the fourth, one he thought may never happen when he was cut by the A’s last year.
“For a guy like me, a late-round draft pick, a guy who takes pride in his work ethic, it’s quite an honor,” Sweeney said. “Being stuck at 199 for the rest of my life wouldn’t be that fun.”
