The Mariners Celebrate Like They Won The World Series.

The Mariners beat the O's 3-2 tonight in dramatic fashion with a walk off single in the bottom of the 9th. The situation was set up after the Mariners hit a triple with one out and the O's opted to intentionally walk to next two batters to get to Adrian Beltre with the bases loaded. Beltre battled Jim Johnson to a 3-2 count before he finally hit a weak ground ball past a drawn in infield to give the Mariners the win.

The Mariners proceeded to celebrate by chasing Beltre around the infield, acting like a June win against the Orioles actually means something. Neither team is going anywhere so there is really no reason for anyone to be excited.

The Clipped Wing Award for tonight's game goes to... Matt Wieters!

The boy with the golden catchers mitt has been a mess since his call up from AAA. He is batting a paltry .143 and it seems that each of his outs has either been a strikeout or a pop-out. Tonight, he grounded into a double play with the bases loaded. I'm sure he will turn things around, but right now something isn't clicking for him.
