Exit 164: Olivo hits history’s lamest homer

M’s find that things go better with Coke (Phil, that is)

Mariners 7, Tigers 3 [box]: The M’s teed off on Phil Coke again, this time scoring on hits instead of walks. In the two games the M’s have faced Coke, they’ve averaged 10 runs scored. In their other 22 games, they’re averaging 2.95 runs. More Phil Cokes, please! M’s 9-15, 4th place, 5.5 GB. Next game today @ Detroit.

Flipped on the game yesterday and heard Dave Sims mention that Miguel Olivo had hit his first home run of the year. “That’s a good sign,” I thought. Until I saw the highlight. If you haven’t seen it, I’m not going to spoil it for you.

How ’bout the M’s pulling out a game when Felix Hernandez wasn’t at his best. It was a “total team effort.” John McLaren would’ve been proud. The offense hammered out six extra-base hits, and the bullpen came through with three scoreless innings.

Seahawks poobahs John Schneider and Pete Carroll are a model of corporate cooperation, writes Doug Farrar.

Steve Sarkisian called Pete Carroll for advice on how and when to name his QB starter, reports ESPN’s Ivan Maisel.

Another name in the Huskies’ search for a post player — Wally Judge, a transfer from Kansas State, will visit UW.

Baseball All-Star voting began today. You’ll be able to tell how many ironic Mariner fans there are by how many votes Chone Figgins gets.

Former Mariner Carl Everett held a gun to his wife’s head Monday night, then broke two different cell phones that she tried to called for help. This is a woman he’s been married to for 18 years. Yuk.

Here’s a letter to fans from Steve Zakuani.
