Afraid that the last two wins against the subpar Astros Reds (see comment below) were mere gifts of the gods, Seattleites sighed in relief this evening when the Mariners exploded against Julian Tavarez, knocking him out in the 5th en route to a 9-4 victory.
Nice to see Weaver notch a win, he of the early-season antacid arm.
Seven games above .500, and within pickoff distance of the wild-card. Hope. Slim, but measurable.
