Mariners Game #107 Preview, 8/1/23: BOS at SEA

If only the Mariners could acquire a player named Agosto

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

July is over, and in just [checks watch] one hour and ten minutes, the trade deadline—which I just mistyped as “dreadline”—will be over as well. [UPDATE: the trade deadline is now completed. Look for an article dropping soon analyzing the Mariners’ moves—or lack thereof.] Agosto is upon us, and so are the Red Sox and their fans, for another game.


The two new guys find their way into the lineup immediately, as the Mariners get a chance to stack some lefties for once against a righty starter. Teoscar Hernández gets a day off, something that’s much appreciated as, per Servais, he’s “running on fumes.”

Game info:

Tonight’s game starts at 6:40 PT. It will be televised on ROOT Sports NW with Dave Sims on the call, and the audio call will be on 710 AM Seattle Sports or streamed via or At-Bat with Rick Rizzs on the call.

Today in Mariners history:

  • 2000: Mike Cameron walks it off against the Red Sox in the 19th inning:
  • 2001: Bret Boone drives in a run to become the first player of the season to reach the 100 RBI mark.
  • 2013: In the Most Mariners Game Ever until the next Most Mariners Game Ever, the Mariners blow a six-run lead in a game started by Félix Hernández, giving up six runs in the bottom of the 9th to lose 8-7 to the Red Sox at Fenway Park.
  • 2015: Ketel Marte records his first Major League hit, a single, as the Mariners lose 3-2 to the Twins. It is the first time a preschooler records a hit in MLB.
