Final score: Mariners 3, Indians 1
The Mariners have won eight baseball games in a row.
I was a bit shell shocked when they pulled out seven wins in their last homestand, only to falter on their road trip.
This feels different. Better. More real, legitimate, or sustainable.
I apologize if you’re expecting coherent analysis, because I’m in far too optimistic a mood to give it.
The Mariners have won eight games in a row. Michael Saunders struck four home runs in as many games. Eric Thames has repeatedly proven his trade worth, striking out three times this afternoon, but pulling out a game-winning 2-RBI double in the 8th.
The Mariners could very well be on the cusp of something great. I just can’t figure out if that makes me excited or scared.
Next game: @ White Sox | August 24 | 5:10pm
