Game 1 vs Baltimore
Mariners lost to the Orioles 5-3 Thursday night at Safeco Field. The Mariners did all of their scoring in the second inning scoring on two errors and a good old fashioned run batted in. Sloppy defense gave the M's some hope for about an inning or two before Aaron Sele couldn't quite keep Jay Gibbons in the park and gave up a homer. The Mariners were down by only one run going into the 9th inning, but JJ Putz couldn't keep the birds out of the nest as he game up one more run to make it 5 runs to 3 runs. Mariners couldn't get anything going again their closer BJ Ryan.
Raffy Palmiero managed one hit tonight to come within a single hit of 3000. In the 8th inning when he was at bat against Julio Mateo, our pitcher was booed when he ended up walking him. So it didn't happen for Palmiero today, but he has 3 more games to victimize the seattle pitchers.
