Last night the Mariners thrilled our hearts and stole one from the Red Sox despite Paxton not having his best stuff and the normally strong defensive Mariners booting the ball around the field. I’m currently watching Oregon State play in the College World Series and the same affliction seems to have struck the normally surehanded Beavers. The Beavs are at the end of their season and playing in triple-digit temps on a big stage in what sounds like a fairly hostile crowd. The Mariners are similarly playing in front of a hostile crowd in the annual Red Sox takeover of Safeco, which, gross, but don’t have any other excuses for some sloppy play. They’ll have to clean that up if they want to stand a chance tonight with the limited LeBlanc on the mound, after a short outing from Paxton last night depleted one of the long relief arms in the bullpen.

It’s Pride Night at the ballpark, and David Freitas and his son Owen are celebrating:
Also, if you haven’t yet, take a gander at Isabelle’s piece from earlier today. Here’s the latest update. Way to go, everyone—this community is so powerful and we are all so proud to be a part of it.
I'm in complete awe of the generosity of the @LookoutLanding community. We've now raised nearly $3,000 since this morning for @thisisdspan's Foundation - that's a heck of a welcome to the Mariners organization! Thank you to all who read, shared, and donated ❤️ https://t.co/h3fKzFnV5n— Isabelle Minasian (@95coffeespoons) June 16, 2018
