Mariners Start Last 10-game push for playoffs

The Mariners have returned home following a much-needed day of rest before starting the final 10 games of the season on Thursday night.

The Texas Rangers come to T-Mobile Park this evening for a start time of 6:40 for ROOT Sports Northwest. Robbie Ray will toe the rubber for Seattle while Texas has yet to announce who will be their starter.

The number Seattle needs to win an Wild Card playoff spot is 8. The updated number is of Major League Baseball. A combination of eight Mariner victories or Baltimore defeats would send Seattle in the playoffs at first since the year 2001. It’s the longest run in the history of all professional sports teams in America.

Toronto is leading in the American League Wild Card Chase by 3 games over Seattle following a 3-2 victory against the Yankees over 10 innings last night. Vlad Guerrero, Jr. scored the walk-off RBI hit in the 10th inning to lead Toronto’s Blue Jays last night.

Baltimore isn’t going away As the Orioles hit five home runs in Boston on Saturday night, defeating their rivals the Red Sox 14-to-8. Baltimore’s eighth win is just three and a half games behind Seattle to secure the final playoff spot.
