Seattle Mariners Notes, Quotes 2009-04-15
--RHP Carlos Silva, anxious to put a 4-15 season behind him in front of a boisterous home-opener crowd, allowed just two runs in seven innings against the Angels on Tuesday. "The crowd was very supportive," he said, "but I had to put it out of my mind and just pitch." His seven-inning stint was his longest since he went eight innings at Oakland on July 8.

--DH Ken Griffey, troubled by a bit of back pain, didn't start in right field Tuesday as scheduled. He did, however, single in the first inning and later break up a double play. And he also drew a walk in his first game playing in a Seattle uniform in Safeco Field since Sept. 26, 1999. He got a couple of standing ovations from a crowd of 45,958.

BY THE NUMBERS: 6 -- Consecutive wins by Seattle over Oakland dating back to last season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "My friends and my wife, who was at the game, were more amped up than I was." -- RHP Shawn Kelley, on appearing in his first big-league game April 10 against Oakland. He pitched a scoreless inning.
