Seve Ballesteros once hit his tee shot into a car park at The Open and still made birdie on the hole, and eventually went on to win the championship. Beckett blanked the Mariners last night, striking out nine over seven innings and allowing four hits, distancing himself from the numerous duffs in his last round. Seattle (actually Ichiro) mounted their only real threat in the sixth inning, with Suzuki singling in the infield, and then stealing second and third, but a flyout rendered Ichiro's efforts fruitless.
Ivan Nova and the Bombers head to Camden to play Jason Hammel and the Orioles. Hammel and Nova each have 4-1 records and though Hammel's 983 whip is sporty to ponder, he is coming off a missed start due to a sore leg while Nova had his best start of the year against the Rays his last time out.
