MLB: Detroit Tigers at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

We were all excited about the Mariners’ come-from-behind, walk-off win on Sunday to take the series from the Tigers. I myself was listening in the car when Mitch Haniger went yard, and nearly injured my hand from smacking the steering wheel in whatever the opposite of road rage is.

The hype was not limited to just fans. The Guillermo-Jean best friendship train is gaining steam:

In Mariners News...

  • Speaking of the new best friends, Jean Segura and Guillermo Heredia posted the same picture of elation after Sunday’s thriller.

  • The team store is selling the Breaking T “Hanimal” t-shirt we helped design, which is cool. Shameless plug alert: If you buy directly from this link, we get a cut, which I (Kate) use for things like site subscriptions, audio equipment, and other things that help support the site. But no judgement if you wander into the team store and make an impulse buy, because I know how that goes.
  • Jean Segura told 710 that after going home every day he, “can’t wait until the next day to come here and play baseball because now my love for the game came back” (story includes audio interview).
  • The Mariners’ marketing team had to do it to ‘em.
  • Things got weird in Visalia.
  • In some more wholesome minors news, the cuteness of pitching prospect Darin Gillies and a new friend:

Around the League...

  • Khris Davis left the A’s game on Sunday, just two days before Oakland starts a three-game series against Seattle. This is the part where I remind you that Davis has 17 home runs in 44 career games against the Mariners. His injury doesn’t sound serious, but per Susan Slusser, it’s still bad.
  • The Braves broke up with Jose Bautista, but are interested in remaining friends.
  • Kendrys Morales could be a nice addition for teams looking for bullpen help.

Matthew’s Picks...

  • This goal from Ryan Reaves sent the Vegas Golden Knights to the Stanley Cup Final in their first year of existence.
  • Chris Paul wore this outfit to a game that his team lost by 41 points.
