That was fun.
Securing their first winning road trip of the season in one of the craziest Mariners games I’ve seen in a while, the Mariners are now 25-30 and just 1.5 games behind the struggling Los Angeles Angels for second place in the AL West. The series continues tomorrow at 5:10 PM with Chris Flexen on the mound.

Erik Swanson will not be joining the club in Houston. He needs to make one more rehab outing. It was pushed back a couple days due to fatigue – not pain. His return date is still a few days off.
