I am not in New York for this game. I’m in Atlanta. Trying to get everything rescheduled for this make-up game just didn’t work out on many levels. So you’ll miss my witty prose on updates during the game. Everything will be back to normal tomorrow.
I tried to get this stuff posted earlier, but in-flight wi-fi is much like Jesus Montero running a 100-yard dash.
As you can see, Robinson Cano is back in the line-up tonight. As expected, Erasmo Ramirez will start Tuesday in Atlanta. Taijuan Walker’s start in El Paso with Tacoma was bumped back to Tuesday as well to put him on the same schedule as Ramirez. That gives them the option of calling up Walker if he comes out of his rehab start well and if Ramirez struggles.
James Jones is in the starting line-up after experiencing groin tightness. It would have taken a lot to keep him out of the line-up considering how excited he is to be playing in Yankee Stadium. Here’s my story from today’s paper on his return home.
THIS DAY IN MARINERS HISTORY (June 2):
- 1987 – Ken Griffey Jr. is selected first overall in the 1987 June Draft out of Cincinnati’s Moeller High School. He received a $160,000 bonus and reported to the Bellingham Mariners.
- 1990 – Randy Johnson throws the first no-hitter in Mariners history, combining power (8 strikeouts) and wildness (6 walks) in a 2-0 win vs. Detroit.
- 1996 – Bob Wolcott outduels Roger Clemens for a 3-1 win vs. Boston. Ken Griffey Jr. steals his 100th base in the game.
- 2002 – The Mariners come back from deficits of 6-0 and 7-1 to beat the Orioles, 11-8 at Camden Yards. Bret Boone’s 8th inning grand slam was the game-winner. Ichiro bats in the third spot for the first time in his career and goes 4-for-5 with 2 runs scored and a RBI.
- 2010 – Ken Griffey Jr. announces retirement from Major League Baseball.
- 2011 – Mariners hit a season-high 4 home runs, including 2 from rookie Carlos Peguero in an 8-2 win over Tampa Bay. Marked first 4-homer game at Safeco Field since June 23, 2007 vs. CIN.
- 2012 – Ichiro hit a pair of solo home runs, and the Mariners hit home runs to lead off each of the first three innings in a 10-8 win over the White Sox in 12 innings.
