Game thread, April 23 vs. Rays
Apr. 23, 2009 (The Seattle Times delivered by Newstex ) --

FIELDING TAKES A HIT --- Well, the necessary move of Jamie Burke to first base has resulted in the first scoring threat of the day for the Rays as he mishandled a gronder from Ben Zobrist, with a Rob Johnson error then allowing Pat Burrell --- who had singled --- to get to third..

The two errors on one play give Seattle 12 for the season, the most in the American League.

ICHIRO GOES DEEP --- Ichiro has given Seattle a 1-0 advantage with a leadoff HR to right on a 1-0 pitch off James Shields. It's the 28th leadoff HR of Ichiro's career.

FELIX ON FIRE --- Hernandez needed just 14 pitches to retire the Rays in the first inning, including two strike outs. With the chill in the air and the afternoon sun, this has the feel of one of those two-hour games.

LINEUPS ANNOUNCED --- Here's the lineup for today's game,
