DETROIT —Tom Wilhelmsen had already allowed two hitters to reach base when
Detroits Delmon Young hit a deep fly to right-centre field. Bruce Matthews Jersey . The ball stayed in
the air for a while before Ichiro Suzuki finally caught it. “Like two hours,”
Wilhelmsen joked. “I just looked up and saw Ichie make this grab and was like,
Thank God hes out there.” Wilhelmsen held off the Tigers in the eighth inning,
and Seattle went on to a 7-4 victory over Detroit on Tuesday night. Alex Liddi
had a career-high three hits, including a solo homer, and the Mariners snapped a
four-game losing streak. Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila homered for the Tigers,
but it wasnt enough to overcome an early 4-0 deficit. Michael Saunders drove in
three runs for Seattle. Jason Vargas (3-1) pitched six innings for the Mariners,
allowing four runs and six hits. He struck out four and walked one. Three
relievers finished, with Brandon League pitching a hitless ninth for his sixth
save. Max Scherzer (1-2) allowed five runs and 10 hits in five innings. He
struck out six and walked two. Liddis homer—his first of the season—made
it 6-4 in the seventh. The Italian-born third baseman made his debut last
September and had only one two-hit game before Tuesday. He singled in the first
and fifth before his home run. “Our team did a pretty good job putting pressure
on the pitcher,” Liddi said. “Every inning, we had somebody on base, so it was a
really good game for us.” The Mariners still led by two when Suzuki made a
jumping catch on Youngs flyball with two on in the eighth. Cabrera went to third
on that out, but Jhonny Peralta then struck out looking on a breaking ball.
After a passed ball allowed Prince Fielder to move to second as the tying run,
Wilhelmsen struck out Avila to end the inning. “One of the reasons hes in the
back side of our bullpen is because theres a lot of toughness there,” Seattle
manager Eric Wedge said. “Hes a tough cookie out there. He competes. Hes a
fighter.” Scherzer, who has been erratic so far this season, struggled through a
25-pitch first inning, allowing an RBI single by Jesus Montero to open the
scoring. The right-hander appeared to steady himself, fanning Saunders to end
the inning and striking out the side in the second, but the Mariners scored
three in the third. Kyle Seager drove in a run with a single, and Saunders added
a two-run double. “His stuff was unbelievable, he just couldnt control it,”
Avila said. “Thats what we need to do—get him to a point where hes got this
stuff and gets into a groove. Weve seen what he can do when he pitches like
that.” Detroits Brennan Boesch hit an RBI single in the bottom of the third, and
Avila made it 4-3 with a two-run homer the following inning—a 432-foot shot
into the shrubbery over the wall just to the right of dead centre field. Fielder
was on base for that home run after hitting an infield single. His comebacker
bounced off Vargas and toward the line between home and third, and the big
Detroit slugger hustled down to first. But the Tigers could never pull even.
Miguel Olivo hit a run-scoring groundball in the fifth for Seattle before
Cabrera answered with a solo shot in the bottom of the inning. Then Liddi
restored a two-run advantage. Saunders hit an RBI double in the ninth. NOTES:
Detroit RHP Al Alburquerque (right elbow surgery) was transferred from the
15-day to the 60-day DL. ... Opponents are hitting .475 on balls in play off
Scherzer this season, according to STATS, LLC. ... The Mariners were playing the
opener of a 10-game road trip. ... Detroit manager Jim Leyland remained stuck on
1,598 wins, one victory shy of catching Tommy Lasorda for 17th on the career
list. ... Seattle ace Felix Hernandez (1-1) takes the mound Wednesday night
against Detroit LHP Adam Wilk (0-2). Earl Campbell Jersey . The Grimsby, Ont.,
native stands alone as Canadas most decorated Olympic womens wrestler after
capturing her first silver at Athens 2004 and a bronze at Beijing 2008. “I
promised going into the Olympics I would give everything and the result would
take care of itself,” Verbeek said. Kendall Wright Jersey . Louis 3-2 Saturday,
ending the Cardinals four-game winning streak. The Cubs had lost five in a row
to St. Louis. Chicago has won nine of its last 11 overall at Wrigley Field. http://www.tennesseetitansjerseyonsale.com/kenny-britt-jerseys
. But considering how much the Miami Marlins are struggling, maybe its not all
that surprising. “Its just a tough time right now for me and a lot of people,”
Nolasco said. Chris Johnson Jersey . —Chris Rolfe scored
two goals and Arne Friedrich added one to lead the Chicago Fire past the
Philadelphia Union 3-1 on Sunday night. Matt Hasselbeck Jersey . Haas handled the
pressure of an equally large cushion just fine five years ago, so the odds for
an unprecedented third Champions Tour title in Iowa are certainly in his favour.
EDMONTON —Edmonton city council has voted to continue on with the design work
on the proposed downtown arena. Its going to move forward even though right now,
the price tag for the project is $35 million higher than the approved budget of
$450 million. The vote was 10-3 with councillors Kerry Diotte, Tony Caterina and
Linda Sloan voting against the design proposal. Council has identified $17
million in items that can be cut from the design and still have a plus or minus
variance of 20 per cent. Councillor Karen Leibovici says she doesnt think there
will be any problem in bringing the project in at $450 million. Mayor Stephen
Mandel is urging that the project go ahead without scaling things back too much.
“Weve heard time and time from citizens, they dont want us to build anything for
crap,” Mandel said. “They want us to build a good building, so I think at some
point in time council is going to have to decide if it is going to be over, what
is the overage going to look like.” Sloan says she doesnt like where tthis is
going. Kenny Britt Youth Jersey. “I frankly dont
care if (the arena exterior is) zinc or steel and I dont have any questions for
the consultants because I think were not at the stage where we can discuss the
next stage.” “If were going to build the bloody thing we need to get together
and find consensus and find differences we have with ourselves and solve them,”
said Mandel. “This project is about more than an arena. It is a catalyst for
revitalizing downtown, and it is important to realize councils vision for a
strong and vibrant core to our city.” The arena would be the new home for the
NHL Edmonton Oilers, owned by drugstore magnate Darryl Katz. The city is to pay
$125 million towards the building, with another $125 million coming from a
ticket tax and Katz putting up $100 million—leaving a shortfall of $100
million. City officials are still trying to secure $100 million in funding from
the province—an amount that was part of 17 conditions discussed when the
arena agreement was made. ’ ’ ’
