And so as we all predicted, the Seattle Mariners have one of the most potent offenses in baseball, so much so that they an overtake a 10 run deficit in a span of 2 innings.
The San Diego Padres looked to have a game against the Mariners wrapped up after scoring 4 runs in the first, 1 in the 4th, and 7 in the 5th to take a 12-2 lead. But the surprising Mariners have mounted an astonishing comeback, almost reminiscent of the legendary 2001 13-12 comeback that came against Seattle by the Indians.
In the top of the 6th, the Mariners added 5 runs to make it 12-7 on a Kyle Seager double and a Dae-Ho Lee home run. They were looking to make it a close game.
But the 7th inning. Oh, the 7th inning. As of this writing it is still going on.
The Mariners scored 9 runs in the 7th inning – all with two outs. Seven straight singles led to these runs. Once again it started with Seager and Lee, followed in quick succession by Chris Ianetta, Stefan Romero, Shawn O’Malley, Norichika Aoki, and Franklin Gutierrez. Robinson Cano eventually grounded out to end the inning, but the damage was done. a 12-2 score in the Padres favor has turned into a 16-12 score in the Mariners favor.
