Your Seattle Mariners are currently the best team in baseball, in sole possession of 1st place in the American League West, after beating the Oakland A’s in Tokyo Japan 3-1 at 3AM Seattle time, a game that marked the start of the 2012 MLB season.Enjoy it while it lasts, it’s a long season,and no other teams have played a game yet. Ace Felix Hernandez held former M’s manager Bob Melvin’s A’s to one run, while Dustin Ackley homered and got a go-ahead RBI single in the 11th inning. Naturally the sold out crowd of almost 45,000 at the Tokyo Dome went bull-goose looney when Ichiro came to the plate.One more game with the A’s…2AM this morning our time, then back to the states for a two-week road trip, and finally the home opener at Safeco Friday the 13th of April. Details.
