There are four Wild Card games this weekend and eight teams capable of advancing to the divisional round.
Logan Morrison hit a three-run homer, and Seattle boosted its wild-card hopes with a 3-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday night.
Seattle went 2-4 on the homestand and play 11 of its final 14 on the road.
It’s Wild Card Weekend in the National Football League. A two-day run that may be the best of the year in all of sports, and one that will send home four of the 12 postseason participants.
Erasmo Ramirez gave the Mariners a nearly spotless performance, but it was not enough as the Tampa Bay Rays came from behind for a 4-1 win over Seattle.
While the Mariners’ season has technically been “over” for some time, The Kansas City Royals are still playing for something. ansas City is trying to snap their lengthy playoff drought by staying within reachable distance of a Wild Card spot.
The Mariners’ recent play makes it hard to say whether the team should push for a playoff spot by buying or build for the future by selling…or stay the course and not do anything at all.
