35-34, Chart

Above .500 with a run differential of -20. This is starting to feel a little familiar. 

They say that good teams make their own luck. I don't buy that for a second. Luck, by its very definition, cannot be caused. The thing about luck, though, is that while it can happen to anyone, some teams are able to take more advantage of it than others, and if the short-handed Mariners use things like Clark's error tonight and Hundley's error a few days ago in order to stay afloat, then so be it. You can't make yourself look better by causing good luck, but there's nothing wrong with taking advantage of a little good luck while you wait to get better.

We won. We won with that lineup.
