Mariners take BP.
It's Pokemon day at the Stadium.
Ready to start.
Ichiro leads off.
Facing Darrell Rasner.
This NYPD helicopter circled low over the Stadium for a while.
Jarrod Washburn, Seattle starter.
Hideki Matsui is close to a milestone.
Rasner is doing very well.
Derek Jeter is up with 2 on and 2 out in the 5th.
Jeter singled in one, bringing up Bobby Abreu.
Abreu singled in another, bringing up Alex Rodriguez.
Rasner leaves in the 6th after giving up no runs on just 3 hits.
Matsui with another chance for 2000 hits (combined Japan+MLB). He
doubled on a high fly ball that the left fielder lost in the sun.
Start of controversy - the benches were warned after Washburn hit Josh
Phelps. Joe Torre didn't like it.
After a single by Cairo (his first hit of the year), bases loaded for
Wil Nieves in a 2-0 game. Nieves grounded to first to drive in one.
After Scott Proctor threw behind Yuniesky Betancourt, Proctor and
Torre were tossed, and the benches cleared.
In come the bullpens.
Just a lot of standing around for the most part.
Proctor was a little upset, though.
Sean Henn is on to finish pitching to Betancourt.
We had a typical 7th inning stretch, until....
Bob Sheppard started talking over Take Me Out to the Ballgame
and asked everyone to look at the owner's box, where Roger Clemens
announced his return to the Yankees.
Since Matsui's 2000th hit was scored an error at first, we only got
to acknowledge it at his next at-bat.
Matsui batting, and he soon drove in a run with his 2001st career hit.
Bobby Abreu ready to put away a fly ball.
Kyle Farnsworth on for the 8th.
Cairo now has a nonzero batting average. Then he got another single.

Brian Bruney on for the 9th, with a 5-0 lead to protect.
Doug Mientkiewicz, who came on to play defense and didn't get an at
bat, but made a great diving stop to rob Jose Vidro of a double in the 8th.
Final on the board.
A look at the progress on the new stadium.
