SEATTLE (AP) _ Kansas City jumped on Seattle starter Jeff Weaver
for six runs in the first inning and coasted to an 8-to-3 win over
Ex-Mariners hurler Gil Meche (mesh) pitched six innings to
improve to 2-and-1. Weaver is oh-and-4. He gave up five hits to
start the game and never recovered.
Weaver wasn't hit hard with only one of the seven hits he
allowed going for extra bases. But it was the shortest start of his
career, and Seattle's four-game win streak was snapped.
Weaver has never pitched well in April -- he's now 12-and-25 in
