SEATTLE – Mike Carp played one regular season game, made one awkward landing on a dive and found himself on the disabled list.
Considering this first week of May has essentially served as an extended spring training for Carp, his bat seems to be coming along just fine.
Carp hit his first homer of the season, rookie slugger Jesus Montero hit a two-run double and the Mariners cruised to a 5-2 win over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday – Seattle’s second win in a row following a seven-game losing streak.
“I’ve felt pretty good…” Carp said. “Hopefully (I’ll) start taking off here pretty soon.”
Montero doubled in the first and Carp went deep in the second, giving Seattle starter Hector Noesi all the offense he would need against Minnesota’s hapless offense. Noesi took a shutout into the seventh inning before giving up a solo home run to Ryan Doumit. Despite the homer, Noesi (2-3) allowed just four hits and struck out five.
