Our Seattle Mariners, America's Team.
After a once in a lifetime comeback, the Seattle Mariners have become the talk of the baseball world once again. Bring on the Astros.
27 years ago yesterday, the biggest hit in Seattle franchise history happened. The hit that saved baseball in Seattle, was “The Double” off the bat of Edgar Martinez. 27 years later the Mariners responded in a fashion only they could, “The Doubles.”
Adam Frazier’s double down the right field line was the nail in the coffin of one of the great comebacks in MLB postseason history. The Mariners were pronounced dead, but nobody told them that.
Seattle received plenty of doubt throughout the week from national media. They were a young team with little to no playoff experience going into a hostile environment like the Rogers Centre.
This showed up big time in the early innings, especially after watching one of their best relievers fall apart to the tune of 4 earned runs in the fifth inning. After Sewald exited the game the Mariners faced a 7-run deficit. In the sixth inning, Seattle started to chip away at that lead.
