This Day in Sports History - 4/2/2001

The Seattle Mariners open the season with a 5 - 4 win over the Oakland Athletics at Safeco Field. They'll go on to post a record of 116 - 46, tying the mark for most regular season wins established by the 1906 Cubs who were 116 - 36. The Mariners won't reach the World Series, however; they;ll lose the ALCS to the New York Yankees, four games to one.
