Remember July 5th? That is the last time the Mariners won a game.
At some point later in the game, I happened across the following tweet from Joe Posnanski:
You get the feeling the Mariners will remember Loss No. 17 as the “time we got that hit off C.C. Sabathia.”
That single felt like a win. Of course that sounds stupid. Of course that sounds humiliating. But the loss was already all but official, and for me it was the first triumphant moment in weeks. It felt better than Miguel Olivo’s game-tying grand slam. The only victory was that the Mariners avoided being no-hit, which generally isn’t so much an achievement as an expectation, but it was an achievement tonight. Lately the Mariners haven’t achieved a lot of positive things.
