Happy Saturday, Mariners fans! The Yankees defeated the Mariners again last night, as the M’s looked again like a team that has no business being in the post-season. Cool, guys. Really cool. SCORE SOME RUNS, YOU BANANA-BRAINED BOOBS.

  • The suddenly-depleted Tacoma Rainiers carved out a 4-3 win last night against the Sacramento River Cats, thanks to a walkoff sac fly from Zach Shank. Boog Powell collected two more hits and is currently batting .344, and Chase De Jong had maybe the best game he’s pitched as a Rainier, going 7.2 innings and giving up 3 runs. And if you think that doesn’t sound impressive, you haven’t seen many Chase De Jong starts.
  • Tyler O’Neill is gone, and the Rainiers are significantly less fun for that, but they should soon be getting an upgrade in the form of Ian Miller. Arkansas lost, because that’s kind of what they do, but Miller went 2-4, because that’s kind of what he does.
  • The AquaSox won, 10-4. Catcher David Banuelos had another strong game, going 3-4 with an RBI double. He’s currently batting .269.
  • Kyle Lewis returned to Modesto with a bang, smacking a three-run home run in the Nuts’ 9-6 win. Eric Filia went 3-4 with a double and a walk and pushed his average to .320. He’s a good candidate to be promoted to Double-A Arkansas to take Miller’s spot. Nathan Bannister turned in another strong start, going five innings of three-hit, two-run ball while striking out eight.
