Mariners work well as a team in 7-4 win over Pirates and it is a beautiful sight

King Felix wasn’t sharp, but the rest of the team was. Baseball, like all sports, is a team game. Baseball, like other sports, can sometimes be taken over by just one player who wills their squad to victory.

Game 98, Mariners at Blue Jays

Wade Miley vs. JA Happ, 10:07am The M’s go for a road sweep of a very good team – a wild card rival – and most M’s fans will be watching something else. Griffey’s induction into the Hall of Fame kicks off a little while after this game starts.
