What a great night to be at Safeco Field! The streak of 20 straight losses to AL West opponents is over, Felix threw a complete game, and the Mariners won!

And it only took an hour and 51 minutes. Not a bad night.

While there aren't a lot of little positives, there is one big positive, and that is that the streak is over. On the individual side -

*Felix Hernandez gets a complete game win, throws only 95 pitches, and gives up 5 hits and no walks.

*Richie Sexson and Kenji Johjima each go 2-for-3 with an RBI, while Adrian Beltre, Raul Ibanez, and Ichiro Suzuki all picked up basehits.

I'll give some credit to Escobar from the Angels for a well-pitched game as well -- although I don't feel bad for the guy.

Finishing at or above .500 is still a very realistic possibility -- let's hold that in our sights and help these guys make it happen!

See you at the Safe on Tuesday -- GO MARINERS!
