Smooth sailing: Santana, Mariners win 8th straight, sweep Jays

Blue Jays first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. had a throw bust through the webbing of his glove and the Seattle Mariners took advantage for their eighth straight win, beating Toronto 6-5 Sunday on two home runs by Carlos Santana.

“Baseball can be cruel sometimes when things aren’t going right,” Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo said.

A day after Santana hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning for a 2-1 win, he connected for a go-ahead, two-run drive in the eighth. The Mariners are 16-3 for their best 19-game stretch since 2003.

“Everything is positive right now, so we have to keep it up,” Santana said. “The energy is great. The fan support, in the clubhouse, teammates are great. When you see that, everything is great.”

The "what in the everloving #### were the Mariners thinking when they traded for Carlos Santana?" update:

282/404/538, 11-1 record ... from 4th in the ALW, 6 wins behind the Rays, 7 behind the Jays to 2nd in the ALW, tied with the Jays for the last WC spot

So that's what they were hoping for (well, much more) -- to have a proven hitter catch fire at the right time. Obviously it could have worked out much worse but at least they tried. He'll go back to his normal self any day now but as long as they don't fool themselves into keeping him in the lineup every day putting up an 85 OPS+, it was a great trade. (Ty France already back by the way, although off to a rough start.)

You could say they're winning since the trade.

Will the Mariners ever lose again?
