    Mariners Take Series Behind Walker's Arm
    Taijuan Walker puts up a good performance, backed by the Mariners bats

    ANAHEIM, CA - The Angels and the Mariners came into the final game of this series all knotted up at 1-1. The deciding game, also known as the rubber match, was held on a Sunday afternoon with first pitch scheduled for 12:35 local time. 37,687 fans were in attendance as the top two teams in the AL West took the field against each other in a very important early season test. At the end of the day the Mariners, led by Taijuan Walker, took the victory 6-1 in a game that was never really close at all.

    Things started off slow for both teams as the early innings were dominated by both pitchers. In the third inning things started to unravel for Jered Weaver. Leonys Martin hit a solo shot to left field to jump start the scoring for the Mariners, it was his third home run of the season. Robinson Cano then hit a double into left field to setup Nelson Cruz. Cruz, then proceeded to hit a home run to right field to put the Angels in an early 3-0 deficit. Shortly afterwards, Franklin Gutierrez would tack another run onto the scoreboard by hitting a wall-scraper to center-field for his third home run of the season.

    "I really didn't think it was going to leave the yard when I hit it," Gutierrez said about his home run in a post game interview, "but it got over and that's all the counts"

    The Angels got their only run of the night when Kole Calhoun hit a deep bomb to right field off Taijuan Walker to make the score 4-1. However, the Mariners would not be done scoring because in the 7th inning Steve Clevenger hit a home run to center, scoring Kyle Seager, to get to the final tally of 6-1.

    Taijuan Walker put up a very impressive performance of 8 innings pitched while only giving up 5 hits and one run. Walker also struck out 9 batters on the day.

    "Taijuan's performance really set the tone today and gave us the inspiration we needed to win this series," Mariners manager Lance Nelson said after the game.

    After having a 9 game road trip the Mariners will head back to Seattle to play a divisonal foe, the Houston Astros. Nate Karns (2-0, 4.50 ERA) will take the mound against Scott Feldman (1-2, 4.76 ERA) for the opening game with a scheduled first pitch of 7:10 p.m. local time.

    Walker is such a stud in MLB 16 especially if you get his control going...we saw that against the Angels this game with how sharp he was.

    Any idea on what's wrong with Lind? I know he's probably never going to reach his peak Blue Jays form again, but that average is ugly..
