Alvarez smashes it, but right at Rodriguez. #Mariners earn a vitally needed 6-2 victory over Astros to end four-game losing streak and bring them back within a half game of Houston for final WC berth. As a bonus, the Rangers and Blue Jays lost, too.
Munoz will work the 9th for Seattle. Not a save situation, but #Mariners need to lock this one down.
Ty France, professional hitter...back baby!
Ty crushed that ball, pick up the fone & grab that Trident 🔱
Sensational relief work by Brash to work out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the 7th with just one run allowed on a sacrifice fly. #Mariners 5, Astros 1.
Matt Brash, we definitely need a master class!
Bases loaded & Brash comin in. Likely, at least 1 scores (it'd be on Topa)
No Dusty, keep letting Montero pitch...please...
Hernandez singles to bring in Raleigh. A couple of huge two-out hits. #Mariners lead, 5-0.
Cal slices a ball in to right, Rojas speeds home, Cal to 3rd but ANOTHER throwing error so Julio hopes up & scores
Raleigh with a broken-bat single to score Rojas, and another overthrow -- the Astros' third error of the game -- allows Rodriguez to score. #Mariners lead 4-0.
Rojas flies out, but the throw to 3rd (to try to get Ford) goes wild, bounces in to the stands, runners advance, & Ford scores
Mike Ford leads off the third with the first hit by the #Mariners, a single to right.
Kirby seems settled, now if we could like, get him some run support PLEASE!
So the ump decided that inning. 2 blown calls, Geno should have walked but thanks to the ump show, he goes down swinging.
⭐️ Tonight's the 26th game this season that started at 56°F or cooler (all but 3 have been home games).
Only #Mariners have played more such games in baseball this season (28 games).

Justin Verlander was simply magnificent tonight, giving up just 3 hits in eight innings in the #Astros’ 5-1 victory over the #Mariners.
He was perfect in 7 of the 8 innings.
The victory gives the Astros a 1.5-game lead over Seattle for the 3rd and final wild-card berth.
Is it bad I just approved #Mariners trending and my first thought was "Oh god, who groped what this time?"
Los #Mariners han perdido un partido que no deberían perder. Quedan otros ocho que tampoco debería perder. En todo caso, gracias a mi amiga Lola (que me ha traído esta gorra de Nueva York, territorio enemigo) ya estoy listo para seguir con la #PennantFever mientras dure. Y, si no sale, pues el año que viene (el sino de este equipo)
Y, sí, estoy trabajando.
View from my chair on the deck after a long day of chores getting ready for a changing of the seasons here in the #PNW. Might not be 70 again until next spring.
Rain likely starts tomorrrow. Fortunately we got by another year without any major wildland fire in the outer semi-urban/rural areas east of #Seattle. But due to #climateChange I have helped to kickstart an effort to organize my neighborhood to be better able to deal with disasters of various sorts.
So… not realizing that tonight was going to be the beginning of the post season that isn’t really a post season for the #ALWEST and the #Mariners, I made plans that have nothing to do with #baseball. Hope my friends understand I’m gonna be distracted AF. Let’s GOOOOOO, Ms! 🔱 #mlb #SeaUsRise #SubeLaMarea

Hello, folks! I just migrated servers and I’m still waiting for all my follows to move with me.
So I guess it’s time for a new #introduction! I’ve been on mastodon for about nine months now and I love it here. I mostly use it to talk about #art, #nature, #spiders, #cooking, #dungeonsanddragons, #mariners, #sounders, being from the #PNW, #books and anything else that comes to mind. Looking forward to meeting y’all and reconnecting with folks who might have accidentally got lost in migration.
#Introduction take 3:
I'm Audrey, a 35-year old trans woman. My interests include #videogames, cheesy, campy, and #badmovies, #sports (particularly the #Mariners and #Seahawks) and #reading, particularly #fantasy and #ScienceFiction. I also enjoy following #leftist #politics, but I tend not to participate in political discourse. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.
New #Introduction! Instead of a list of some things I am, here's a list of some things I post about.
Now watching #Treason on Netflix. Now reading The Turning Point: 1851--A Year That Changed Charles Dickens and the World.
New social who dis, so I may as well type up an #introduction. I’m an #IT #manager who cut his teeth doing #networkEngineering, #infrastructureEngineering, #SRE, and #infosec . I love #cars, #autocross, #bikes, #design, #baseball - #mariners and #orioles, #fitness, #travel, and #parenting.
I don’t love that we’re expected to advertise our politics, but I’m pretty left. Be decent to each other.
Here to talk with interesting folks, make some dumb jokes, and learn.
⚠️ ATTENTION MARINERS MASTODON ⚠️
As the blue bird continues to implode and become less accommodating to anyone who isn’t a dyed-in-the-wool fascist, a reminder:
I built HitItHere.Cafe last month in anticipation of the migration Mariners fans needing a new home.
I love the community around our favorite team, and I’d love for this instance to grow it.
Please spread the word! GOMS
Your #insomnia -fueled reminder:
I created an instance for exactly that!
Hit me up with any questions or if you’d like to support sports fandom in the #fediverse ⚾️🐘💜
I have two (2) accounts that follow me. I operate them both. Soooo…
Hi! I’m Aaron. I’m CloudBasedAaron on the bird app. I’m in #Seattle, and I’m a cloud engineer for a big-ass company. I love it!
I’m a huge fan of #SeaKraken #hockey, #Mariners #baseball and equitable #urbanism and #masstransit. I own a car but would like to eventually #bancars. #affordablehousing and #walkablecities are my dream.
Say hi! Give a follow! Happy to toot your way. 🕶️
I'm a HUGE Sports fan, #Mariners for baseball, well, I love all baseball but they're "my fav". #Seawolves for Rugby (#MLR) & #Seahawks for football (sense a pattern? lol)
#Sounders, #OLReign, #USMNT & #USWNT
I'm not that into politics but do have opinions.
I'm also a licensed #HamRadio operator.
Migrated from that bird site and stoked to start afresh, here.
Beware of incoming #cat pics.
Suppose I could do an #introducton. I’m a photographer based in the #sfbayarea but have ties to #seattle, which is why my sports fandoms are #sfgiants, #mariners, #seahawks, #kraken; #nascar is cool too. Talk #music to me, any genre but my favorites are #PunkRock, #progressivemetal, #shoegaze, #hiphop, and #psychedelicrock.
I’ll #follow if you’re cool or stan Hoobastank.
Let's redo my #introduction :
I'm Audrey, a 34-year old trans woman. My interests include #videogames, cheesy, campy, and #badmovies, #sports (particularly the #Mariners and #Seahawks) and #reading, particularly #fantasy and #ScienceFiction. I also enjoy following #leftist #politics, but I tend not to participate in political discourse. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.
Favorite thing: exploring new things far and wide. Happy place: Mt Rainier National Park (this photo is from the Berkeley Park trail on the Sunrise side).
