|Strikeouts are fascist in Durham|
after his last start on opening day.
In relief Riefenhouser was victim of two long balls, but Sandoval closed the door with a save of the two-inning variety.
The hitting side was full of opportunities, with 11 left on base in the game the score could have been alot higher - but in the end it was Morrison's two out knock that was the big hit of the game for me.
Again we got good production from the bottom of the order, Kiermaier with a pair of hits and Shawn O'malley with one hit and two bases on balls. They both also logged a stolen base off of Mariners prospect starter Walker.

Daddy-Daughter Date Night? Wow. Ok. Uhh, anyways....
The promotions are a little scant, but its a very nice savings on the ticket price vs day of game, one of the best in the league for that category. Also cool that they give a dedicated entrance to Season Ticket folks and I believe they open those gates first. It probablt saves standing in line while security checks every diaper bag in line.
I like the discount at the store and cafe, that should be standard love for Season Ticket Holders for every team. Even the ten percent is something nice to reward the faithful fans and a great way to draw the regulars to one place instead of assorted carts or concessions.
