Mariners Home Opener is Tonight At Safeco Against Angels
Seattle Mariners fans get their first look at the 2014 version of the team tonight at the home opener at Safeco Field tonight against the Los Angeles Angels. It will be the first time that Mariner fans will be able to see Robinson Cano in a Seattle uniform. The former New York Yankee signed a 10 year 240 million dollar free-agent contract in the off-season.
Cano and the Mariners just finished a 4-2 road trip against the Angels and Oakland.
Cano is hitting .391 after the first week, while Justin Smoak and Dustin Ackley combined to drive in 14 of Seattle's 34 runs scored.
The Mariners opened up the season last week with a three-game sweep of the Angels in Anaheim.
Rookie James Paxton, 1-0, pitches for the Mariners.
Before the game the Mariners will honor the Super Bowl Champion Seahawks with Quarterback Russell Wilson and other team members throwing out the first pitch.
