A night of milestones: Dee Gordon’s 1,000th career hit, Albert Pujols tying Babe Ruth for fifth on the all-time RBIs list, the Mariners tying the 2000 St. Louis Cardinals for most home runs in the first 24 games of a season, Yusei Kikuchi’s first MLB win, me eating an entire can of salt-and-vinegar Pringles over the course of this game. That counts as unleavened bread, right?

Using your best reliever (Connor Sadzeck, I think?) in the highest-leverage situation: DEVARIS STRANGE GORDON, .106 WPA


Who cares, you got the win anyway: Yusei Kikuchi, -.145 WPA

Dingers: FOUR!
Errors: ZERO!
Happiness: YES!
