    The few Mariners fans that hung around from the smallest crowd in Safeco Field history Monday night, saw one of the most improbable comebacks in recent team history.

    Luis Rodriguez lined a two-run single with two outs in the ninth inning off Shawn Camp to cap Seattle's rally for an 8-7 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.

    On a night reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez was far from his best, his teammates came through with a remarkable rally to snap Seattle's seven-game losing streak. It was also the Mariners' first home win of the season and snapped a seven-game losing streak despite only 13,056 showing up for the game, the lowest attendance in the 12-year history of Safeco Field.

    I also like the probaseballNW blog: http://www.proballnw.com/04-2011/thats-why-you-never-leave-3-7/

    My free LeaguePass seems to have ran out, without the paid-for service kicking in. I woke up this morning to a 3-hr DVR recording of a black screen, that just-so-happened to coincide with the come-from-behinder of the year. Sheesh

    The childish side of my brain liked the ESPN.com tagline..."Mariners lick 7-run hole against Jays"
