Mariners look to make it two straight against Athletics

Apr 3, 2007 - 2:47 PM Oakland (0-1) at Seattle (1-0) 10:05 pm EDT

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- Jarrod Washburn will try and keep the Oakland Athletics guessing just like teammate Felix Hernandez did.

Hernandez struck out a career-high 12 and Richie Sexson hit a three-run homer as the Seattle Mariners posted a 4-0 victory over the Athletics in Monday's season opener.

Washburn starts for the Mariners on Tuesday. The righthander went 8-14 with a 4.67 ERA in 31 starts in 2006, his first season with Seattle.

The Mariners last started 2-0 in 1996.

Joe Blanton will start for Oakland. Blanton was 16-12 with a 4.82 ERA last season. Four of those wins came against Seattle.
