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
