    This Day In Sports History (October 1st) – Ichiro Suzuki

    It was on this day in 2004 that Seattle Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki recorded his 258th base hit of the season.  Ichiro broke the 84-year-old record, which was previously held by first baseman George Sisler of the St. Louis Browns. Ichiro tied the record in the first inning, singling off of Texas Rangers starter Ryan […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 9/18/2013 — Hisashi Iwakuma

    Not many pitchers have been able to tame the Detroit Tigers’ offense during the 2013 MLB season.  Hisashi Iwakuma is one of the few, as he added his name to the short list following his dominating performance at Comerica Park last night. Iwakuma entered the game with an already impressive 2.87 ERA, and he would […]

    Someone Was Making It Rain at Safeco Field Yesterday (Video)

    The good people of Seattle are pretty used to rain—but not the kind of rain they had at the Mariners game yesterday. During the seventh inning stretch, somebody dropped a stack of 6,000 one dollar bills off the upper deck, making it rain money like Pacman Jones at a strip club, or Vince Young at […]

    This Day In Sports History (July 15th) — Safeco Field

    It was on this day in 1999 that Safeco Field opened in Seattle, Washington.  The Seattle Mariners would go on to lose their first ever game at Safeco Field to the San Diego Padres by a score of 3-2.

    Stat Line of the Night — 6/11/2013 — Aaron Harang

    Heading into last night’s MLB action, Seattle Mariners pitcher Aaron Harang had only pitched past the sixth inning once in nine starts this season.  That one instance would turn out to be a complete-game shutout performance (on May 27), and he replicated that performance on Tuesday against the Houston Astros. Harang began the evening with […]

    Well, it seems like Major League Baseball fans are finally starting to get back into the swing of things now. You’ll recall that, for opening week, they were a little rusty. We saw a dude fall on his head going for a foul ball, and another dude jumping out of the way of a home […]

    It was on this day in 2009 that the Toronto Blue Jays sent relief pitcher Brandon League and minor league outfielder Johermyn Chavez to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for starting pitcher Brandon Morrow.  Although the Mariners used him mainly as a relief pitcher, the Jays planned on using Morrow as a starter and a […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/26/12 — Jason Vargas

    As a pitcher for the Seattle Mariners, Jason Vargas knows that each time he steps on the mound during one of his scheduled starts, there is a good chance he won’t receive much run support.  After all, his team has scored just 395 runs in 101 games thus far this season (and average of 3.9 […]

    Chasing balls around the outfield during a lengthy four-run inning can cause any outfielder to build up quite the appetite.  Just ask Texas Rangers’ left fielder Josh Hamilton, who found himself doing just that as the Seattle Mariners sent nine batters to the plate during a four-run first inning at Safeco Field on Saturday. So […]
