Mariners Extend Winning Streak to Four

My first full day as a Mariners fan and Seattle gets a win over Baltimore thanks to a grand slam by Richie Sexson and a perfect 9th inning by closer Eddie Guardado.

Sexon’s second grand slam of the season came in the fifth inning and capped a five run inning for the Mariners helping Seattle to an 8-6 win and extending the winning streak to four games.

The Mariners are very much in the race for the AL West with the best record in the division over the last 10 games (6-4) and the second longest winning streak in the majors behind the Dodgers.
