Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says the team is in talks to move their Week 6 game to accommodate the Mariners postseason game on Sunday.
The city of Seattle is caught up in Mariners baseball. For the first time in 21 years, the team made it to the postseason, and they managed to sweep the Toronto Blue Jays to advance to the ALDS. Their opponents will be the top-seeded Houston Astros. Games 3 and 4 will be held at T-Mobile Park in Seattle.
While meeting with the media on Monday, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says that the team is in talks of moving their Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday Oct. 16, to accommodate Mariners-Astros Game 4.
Pete Carroll says Seahawks in talks to move Week 6 game to accommodate Mariners vs. Astros
The Mariners-Astros series is a best-of-five, so whichever team wins three games will advance to the ALCS, where they will take on the winner of the New York Yankees-Cleveland Guardians series. So, Game 4 is not set in stone, as either the Mariners or Astros could sweep their opponents in their first three games.
The only confirmed times for the Division Series is for Games 1 and 2. MLB will announce times for Games 3 and 4 in the coming days.
Seahawks-Cardinals is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. ET.
The Mariners have had quite the start to their postseason run. They shut out the Blue Jays 4-0 in Game 1 after a masterful performance by starting pitcher and trade deadline acquisition Luis Castillo. Then in Game 2, the Mariners overcame a 8-1 deficit to defeat the Blue Jays 10-9 to win the Wild Card Series.
Will the Seahawks move their kickoff time? Will a Game 4 be necessary in the Mariners-Astros series? We will have to wait as the ALDS progresses.
UPDATE (Oct. 12): It was revealed on Wednesday that if there is a Game 4 needed between the Mariners and Astros, kickoff time for the Seahawks-Cardinals game on Sunday will move from 4:05 p.m. ET to 5:30 p.m. ET.
