Mariners Make Miraculous Comeback, Maintain Best Record In A.L.
While not even 20 games into the 2021 season, this year's Seattle Mariners squad is already making their case to be dubbed the "Cardiac Kids".
After being no-hit through five innings and trailing 2-0 in the sixth inning, Seattle's bats heated up in the latter innings to rally for a 7-3 victory in 10 innings at Fenway Park in the first of a four-game series against the Boston Red Sox. The win put the M's mark this year at 12-7 -- good enough for a tie for first place in the American League's West Division along with the Oakland Athletics. Both teams have the top record in the AL and second-best overall ledger in Major League Baseball behind the Los Angeles Dodgers (14-5).
After tying the game at 2-2 the Mariners fell behind 3-2 before having to come from behind again in the 8th on a clutch run-scoring double by Sam Haggerty.
Seattle's 7 runs on just 3 hits is the second-highest output in baseball history.
Seattle takes on the Red Sox in game 2 of their four-game series in Beantown on Friday (April 23) with first pitch scheduled for 4:10 p.m. (Pacific).
Mariners - 7, Red Sox - 3
