Balk-off!

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

In case you missed it, the Mariners won last night in extras on a walk-off balk.

I’m surprised that it had happened 21 times before this in the history of MLB. Regardless, what a weird way to win a baseball game. I’ll take it any day though. Go M’s.

  • Former Mariner Jayson Werth does not like sabermetrics.
  • Former Mariner Steve Cishek is starting a campaign to send pictures of dogs to Clayton Mortensen’s son, who is battling with cancer.
  • Here’s an update on Mariners starting pitching.

  • Some pretty weird reports came out about Trevor Bauer yesterday, which he had to go deny.
  • Redmond’s Emily Tsujikawa is one of two high school athletes playing for the United States in the Woman’s Baseball World Cup.
