Mariners continue to stymie

Four days ago, I wrote about how the Mariners, fresh off an eleven-game losing streak, took it to the Yankees, for some unknowable reason tough against the tough but impotent against their own mediocre division. I described the young starter, Cha Seung Baek, as "fearless."

Indeed. Today, Baek took a no-hitter into the sixth, eventually giving up three (two earned) in a 6-3 victory. Seattle has won 5 of 6, including a sweep of reeling Boston.

Glimmers of hope for next season, I guess.
