Mariner fans are bracing for an intense weekend of baseball as Seattle wraps up the regular season with a chance to make the playoffs…
They’ll host the Angels for the first of three games tonight at T-Mobile Park needing to win at least two games to have any shot at making a tiebreaker game next week.
Marco Gonzales will get the start tonight against Los Angeles’s Jose Suarez. First pitch is at 7:10.
Of course, Seattle fans are sending roses to Baltimore after the Orioles knocked off Boston last night 6-2. That puts the Mariners into a tie for the second Wild Card spot with the Red Sox heading into the weekend.
New York also beat Toronto 6-2 to go up 2-games for the first Wild Card playoff spot. The Yankees face Tampa Bay while Boston plays Washington and Toronto takes on Baltimore over the weekend.
If the Mariners go 3-and-oh while New York, Boston and Toronto go 2-and-1, Seattle would earn the second Wild Card spot and play at New York in a one-game playoff Tuesday.
If everybody goes 2-and-1 over the weekend, Seattle would play a tiebreaker at Boston Monday with the winner playing at New York Tuesday.
There are other scenarios as well, but the bottom line is that Seattle must win at least two and have Boston lose at least once in order for the Mariners to play past Sunday.
