Sandfrog saves the day, and other sports news

Sandfrog makes his Mariner debut and goes 2-4 with 2 runs scored. Moyer looks like he's 39 again, going 8 very strong innings. Top it off with Guardado racking his first Mariner save, and you've got the M's first home win of 2004. Not all is perfect though: still only 2 extra base hits, one by Dan Wilson, and his hot start should be screeching to a halt any day now. Oh, and to those who booed Jeff Nelson: Shut the hell up. All Nellie did was say what most Mariner fans believed last year, and he was punished for it. Jeff Nelson is a Mariner hero and should be treated as such.

While the beloved M's were winning, so were the well-liked San Diego Padres. After getting stuffed by the Big Unit last night, the Pads got 3 off of Brandon Webb and a fairly strong start (6 IP, 5H 2ER) from Ismael Valdez. Ismael Valdez??

To top it off, the Canuckleheads managed a stay of execution, beating the Flames in double-OT up in Calgary, even after blowing a 4-0 lead. I'm a big Canucks fan, but I thought the Bertuzzi Incident had totaly demoralized this easily-shaken team. Good to see I was wrong.

Only minus in the sports world: the Rockets lost to the Forces Of Evil on a last second Shaq putback dunk. Jim Jackson had a shot to win, but he missed. Oh, and if anyone doubts why I hate NBA basketball: the final score of a playoff game featuring a half-dozen HOFers and at least 3 other All-Stars: 72-71. Yep, 48 minutes of basketball, 143 total points.
