The Seattle Mariners are coming off a rough stretch in the early weeks of the season as they try to prove that they can hang in a challenging American League West. A key component to any success for them and the other teams in the division is the ability to beat up on the lowly Houston Astros.
The Mariners found themselves on the wrong end of things going into the 9th inning of their game on Wednesday afternoon. Up to the plate came Kyle Seager, a key player if Seattle’s lineup is going to produce enough runs in 2014. With one home run on the day already, Seager came through again, this time in walk-off fashion.
Seager has gotten off to a disastrous start in 2014, batting .156/.280/.219. He had no home runs and only two RBI entering Wednesday’s action, so the Mariners surely hope that his multi-home run game will be the start of better things for the 26-year-old.
