Seattle Mariners Win 2 of 3 vs Houston, After Oakland Road Sweep
Don't look now, but the Seattle Mariners are now at .500 on the season, tied with their AL West rival and defending World Series Champion Houston Astros 17-17.
The M's just returned from a lengthy road trip, sweeping another American League West foe Oakland A's, and hosted Houston for a three-game series at T-Mobile Park in Seattle.
Seattle Mariners Win 2 out of 3 vs Houston Astros
The series kicked off Friday night in Seattle, and the Astros came away with the W by a score of 6 to 4. Saturday was a different story, as the Mariners exploded for 7 runs in the 8th inning which was enough to hold off the defending world champs, winning 7 to 5.
Sunday's match-up would determine the winner of the series, and with a Seattle win, the M's would move into a tie in the AL West with the Astros, to be just 3.5 games behind division-leading Texas Rangers. The Mariners pulled it off and won the rubber match 3 to 1. They'll next host those division-leading Rangers for a three-game homestand starting Monday. The first pitch is at 6:40 pm.
