Mariners @ White Sox - Game No. 22
Apr. 29, 2009 (News Tribune delivered by Newstex ) --

Yes, it's another day game, the last game of a road trip on which the Mariners have gone 3-2.

Erik Bedard vs. Gavin Floyd, and a healthy Bedard has been a force in April. He has struck out 29 batters in 26 innings and walked only four. That's the best strikeout-to-walk ratio in the game.

What the Mariners need today is some production from No. 3 hitter Ken Griffey Jr. (.196) and No. 4 hitter Adrian Beltre (.169)- as much for those players as for the team.

The very thought of you

Griffey may not be hitting his weight, but pitchers still work to him cautiously. With two outs and no one on, right-hander Gavin Floyd walked Junior on four pitches.

Beltre followed with a double, and Griffey was held up at third base.Russell Branyan grounded out.

Griffey now has 11 hits this season - and 13 walks.
