M's win their first game behind great pitching and some nice clutch hitting. Felix goes eight innings and Wilhelmsen follows up with two scoreless innings and then League puts them away. Ackley was the player of the game with a homer and RBI single. Ichiro shows he still has it by collecting 4 hits. It was nice to see a little action on the base paths with Ackley and Saunders both stealing a base.
I was amazed at reading through the different comments after the M's win of how depressing everyone was. All the comments were about the same old Mariners and look how Smoak, Montero and Carp didn't get any hits. It's pretty ridiculous that with how far we have come with baseball stats, we are still judging players and teams on small sample sizes. In the end, the only thing that matters is that the Mariners won and we have another game to look forward to tomorrow.
