that’s the way -uh-huh, uh-huh- we like it!

Awesome starting pitching, nails bp, power AND manufactured runs and (my personal favorite) SPARKLING defense ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

Congrats to Kyle Seager!

His 35th homer accounted for his 100th RBI ~ both career highs ~ and put him in the M’s history books as only the 9th Mariner to accomplish the combined feats
