Story-Cano Blast Their Way Into The Record Book

Robinson Cano blasted his way into the record books by hitting four home runs in his first three games. He along with Colorado Rockies Trevor Story became the first time two players had four home runs in their first three games in Major League history. Cano's two home runs against the Rangers lead a Mariners comeback win 9-5 to take the series. The second home run came in a five-run Mariners ninth to give them the come from behind victory. The four home runs are the most ever by a Mariner in the first three games of the season, and hasn't been done by a second baseman since Bobby Doerr did it in 1941 for the  Red Sox. In 2015, Cano didn't have his fourth home run until the Mariners 71st game.

Prince Fielder blasted a tape measure shot in the sixth inning three-run homer to give the Rangers a 5-3 lead, only to see the lead blown by closer Shawn Tolleson in the ninth inning on five consecutive hits. The Rangers open a series with the Angels on Thursday night, and the Mariners head home for their home opener against the A's on Friday night.
