In Mariners news...
- Right now the Mariners are down a game to the Angels in the current series, and still have a chance to split with today’s game, but after an infamous brawl the last time they met they have had drastically different luck. Sam Blum over at The Athletic broke down the different direction the two teams have taken since that momentous event. ($)
