Before now, the Mariners hadn't won eight consecutive spring-training games since 1993. Those games finished spring training 1993, and then the Mariners opened spring training 1994 with another six consecutive wins, making for a sort of 14-game win streak if you don't count all the meaningful games in between. Starting for the Rangers on the mound is a guy named Justin Grimm which is appropriate since things are going to be "Grimm" for the Rangers this afternoon etc. etc. etc. kick their collective ass
