Miller and Rameriz Lead Mariners to Second Straight Win
The Seattle Mariners paid Robinson Cano $240 million to boost the anemic offense, but so far this year it's been other Mariner's who are providing the boost. In the 10-3 win on Opening Day Monday Justin Smoak hit a three-run homer and Dustin Ackley hit a bases clearing double. Then, last night it was Brad Miller joining the hit parade. He hit 2 home-runs, Smoak hit a three-run double, and Ackley had RBI doubles, as the Mariners pounded the Angels for the second straight night 8-3.
Seattle scored 16 runs in its first 15 innings of the year while beating Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson, their AL West rivals' two best starters.
Meanwhile Erasmo Ramirez gave up only two runs in 7 innings of work to pick up the win to go 1-0.
Raul Ibanez hit a two-run homer and Josh Hamilton had two hits for the Angels.
