It was an interesting situation as the Mariners put their closer in the game with a 3-2 lead in the eighth inning. After Dylan Moore made a nice play to open up the inning, Montero went on to walk Nelson Cruz on four pitches before hitting Byron Buxton. He got Mitch Garver to ground out for the second out of the inning, but a wild pitch allowed Jake Cave (who pinch-ran for Cruz) to score and tie the game.

Rafael Montero blows Opening Day save Thursday

Rafael Montero blew his first save opportunity of the season Thursday, serving up a solo home run to Alex Dickerson to lead off the inning.

Fantasy Impact

Montero was able to bounce back, getting the next three hitters out including two strikeouts. It took him a bit to find his fastball, but he was able to reach the mid-90's including a 95 MPH four-seam fastball to strikeout Longoria for the final out of the inning. Montero will likely be on a shorter leash as the closer, so he will need to bounce back with his next opportunity.
