MLB: Atlanta Braves at Cincinnati Reds David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone! The Mariners are rolling and it’s the weekend, what could be better?

In Mariners news...

  • Julio Rodríguez is the first official entrant of the 2023 Home Run Derby. Many have asked this, but you do not need to be an All-Star to participate, so this isn’t necessarily indicative of anything on that front.
  • Remember this kid? Yeah, he’s 23 now. Feel old yet? (Kidding. But he is at the London Series!)
  • Hannah Keyser wonders if the Mariners got the momentum shift they needed in that series finale in the Bronx.
  • The 2023 Celebrity Softball Game is notably short on Seattle-area celebrities (outside of the athletes).

Around the league...

  • Electrifying youngster Elly De La Cruz hit for the cycle in just his second week in the big leagues. Oh yeah, and the Reds won their 12th straight game.
  • The London Series returns in 2024!
