The roadtrip starts with a loss. On a positive note, the offense continued to battle back - last year's squad would have folded much earlier. Of note, Roberto Petagine comes off the bench and delivers a double (2-2). How much longer will Mike Hargrove allow Petagine to rot on the bench?
Edit: From the P.I. - "To make room for Lawton, the Mariners designated catcher Guillermo Quiroz for assignment. They also optioned right-hander Jeff Harris to Triple-A Tacoma and recalled catcher Rene Rivera from Tacoma."
