Mariners Win!
It's been too long since we were able to say that! Even Sunday's win was a little hollow; after all, it was against Rhodes, so it wasn't a "real" win. I mean c'mon, M's fans know better than anyone Rhodes blows it in the 9th when the pressure is on.
I have to hand it to Franklin. He pitched exactly his game- throw strikes, and trust your stuff. He deserved this win, and with better luck last year he could have had a Paul Abbot (17-4) season. You know, average pitcher who doesn't beat himself, and puts the ball in play.
This is the type of win this team could build on. Let's see if the improved pitching continues...
