The Krakens began their first road trip of the year with a matchup of Gio Gonzalez and Jeff Samardzija. Gonzalez gave up a 2-run homer to Jonny Gomes in the second but otherwise kept the Macs off the scoreboard until he was pulled in the sixth. Samardzija was gave up one hit until the eighth when the wheels fell off. Two walks and a single loaded the bases and an Infante single and doubles by Hardy and Infante gave the Krakens a 4-2 lead. Rodney held on for the save despite giving up a run. Can this be the start of a turnaround?
