Liddi’s Big Night

Alex Liddi went 3-for-5 with a home run and stolen base the Mariners 7-4 win over the Detroit Tigers last night.

Liddi not only set a career-high for hits in a game, but also became just the fourth rookie in club history to record least three hits, hit a home run and steal a base in the same game. According to the Elias Sports Bureau and their must-read Elias Says feature on ESPN.com, Liddi joins Ruppert Jones (6/5/77 vs. CLE), Ken Griffey Jr. (4/26/89 vs. TOR) and Bret Boone (9/26/93 vs. OAK) as the only other Mariners rookies to record 3+ hits, hit a home run and steal a base in the same game.
