In which the Mariners break the rules and... win.

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

I’ve got a feeling they’re going to sweep this. I don’t know why and my feelings about such things usually aren’t very good. It just feels like a situation just bad enough that they’ll do something ridiculous and shocking and vault back into it at the moment when no one expects it. Except now I expect it, so I’ve ruined all that.

Jean Segura initially didn’t appear here thanks to a fever, but then was reinserted and Dee Gordon moved to Center Field. The Yankees run out what is frankly a pretty weak version of their lineup that is still quite adequate top to bottom. James Paxton takes the bump for Seattle to face Masahiro Tanaka. Here’s hoping we thump him.
