April 21, 1984 - Shalom, Salome
I've decided to make a more concerted effort to ensure a player is only appearing on one team at a time. As such, I made this Salome's last appearance for the Mariners until the All-Star Break (he's currently in the White Sox bullpen).
Boy did he make it count!
Barojas went eight innings, scattering five hits and a walk while striking out three. In his three starts for Seattle this season he's 3-0. That accounts for half of the Mariners' wins. I have a feeling they're going to miss him...
(And a big shout out to the Kingdome, which is featured in this pic. I lived in the Seattle area for three years as a kid and saw a bunch of games here - I loved it despite all the flack it usually gets...)
