Despite the soggy weather the Mariners kicked off the season in Japan. Unless your an early riser or night owl chacnes are you didn’t see the game live at 3:15am. Felix was up to his usual self in the opener. Dustin Ackley looks like the real deal and Ichiro looks to have put last season behind him. Going 4-5 in the opener. The last Mariner to collect four hits on opening day was Ken Griffey Jr. in 1996.
The Los Angeles Dodgers were sold to a group led by Magic Johnson for a record 2 billion dollars. WOW! Better start buying those Mega Million tickets if you want to purchase a MLB Baseball team.
Skyline HS Baseball improved to 3-0 in conference with wins over Eastlake and Newport. The Wolves (2-0 in conference) battled hard and tied the game at 3-3 in the top of the seventh but a walk-off double by Partick Harrod scoring Brandon Fischer saved the day for the Spartans. Josh Baorkas pitched a heck of a game for Eastlake. Matt Lundy and Corbin Powers pitched well against the Knights for a 6-2 win. Not bad for a team picked to finish second to last in Crest Division.
The 10U Spartans Green team got off to a fantastic start winning the Early Bird Classic. The Spartans destroyed the Yakima Rebels in the Championship game 12-0!!! Great job!
