Worth noting

• Monday's 2-0 victory was the third Opening Day shutout in Mariners history (also 3-0 vs. the Tigers in 1995 and 4-0 vs. the A's in 2007). It was also the 300th shutout in club history, with Felix Hernandez being the winning pitcher in 25 of those.

Randy Johnson has been the winning pitcher in 26 of the shutouts, with Jamie Moyer now third on the list with 24.

• Hernandez is the only Mariners pitcher to throw at least seven shutout innings on Opening Day, and he's now done it twice.

• Eric Wedge became the first manager in club history to win his first three Opening Days and is now tied for second with Darrell Johnson (3-1) for the most Opening Day wins overall. Lou Piniella tops that list with five (5-5).

Tickets are still available for the Mariners' home opener next Monday against the Astros, a 7:10 p.m. PT game that kicks off a 10-game homestand also including series against the Rangers and Tigers.
