Roenis Elias and the Mariners bullpen limited the Mets to two runs as Dustin Ackley and Willie Bloomquist led the Mariners offense with three hits apiece.

I sure hope that forearm is okay.

After a series against the Angels filled with excessive amounts of anxiety, it was nice to watch a baseball game without feeling like I wanted to die several times. Good job, Mariners.

QUESTIONS:

1. As Mariners fans, it's been so long since we've really had a reason to care about baseball this late in the season. The playoff race for the second wildcard spot is fairly tight, so these games "matter". How do you guys get through high leverage, intense situations while watching games? I tend to pace a lot. And yell at my girlfriend's cats.

2. I was briefly discussing this with CapSea in today's gamethread, but does anyone have any summery beers that they find particularly enticing/refreshing? Locally, I enjoy Fremont Brewing's Summer Ale and Elysian's Super Fuzz. Less locally, Stone's Saison is quite tasty.

3. This past Saturday, I participated in the Refuse to Abuse 5K down at Safeco. It was a lot of fun; the course took runners around each level of Safeco Field, including down in the tunnel, before finally finishing on the warning track near third base. Did anyone else get a chance to attend? And are there any other races that folks are looking forward to this summer?
