Listen, the pitcher win is a bad stat. There are much, much better ways to evaluate pitcher success than, “Did they pitch five innings and leave with the lead?” Most of us know this.

Still, winning 15 MLB games in a season is an accomplishment, especially for a franchise that’s only had 16 people do it. For sad comparison, the Arizona Diamondbacks have had 11 people do it and they were formed 21 years after the Mariners.

With his win over the Reds on Wednesday, Marco Gonzales joined the list of Mariner pitchers to hit the big 1-5. Try to guess the rest of them.
