LAst Night's Action: Hernandez Overwhelms Kazmir
Seattle Mariners defeat LA Angels 3-0. Scott Kazmir, looking to impress his new team in his first outing, did an admirable job through six innings pitching shut out ball. However in the seventh inning he led the inning off by walking Mike Sweeney. After Adrian Beltre flew out to center, Bill Hall doubled scoring Sweeney ending Kazmir's night. Sweeney ended up scoring in the next at-bat when stealing third catcher Mike Napoli made a throwing error. Felix Hernandez however was lights out pitching eight innings while giving up only four hits and three walks. Although King Felix had runners on the basepads all day, he was able to get out of every jam. The Angels lost two of three games in this series and now head over to Kansas City.
Arizona Diamondbacks defeat LA Dodgers 4-1. Here's my recap.
- In former Dodgers news ole Tubby, Brad Penny, signed with the San Francisco Giants after being released by the Boston Red Sox. He made his first start with the Giants Wednesday night and pitched a five-hit shutout over eight innings. Asshole.
- Sports Illustrated's Peter King published his NFL preview and has my Bears losing to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. There goes that SI jinx. Now I have to put up a year of injuries and overall ineptitude thanks to King. Asshole. As for LAist's picks, they'll be coming out soon.
