If you skipped out early on work today for the Mariners, consider yourself lucky. Hisashi Iwakuma no-hit the Baltimore Orioles
Only a pair of 11th inning losses prevented the Ms from sweeping last week. Well done. Probably way too late for a wildcard run, but well done nonetheless.
The Orioles have an impressive hitting lineup led by Adams Jones and Manny Machado. Baltimore comes into town a few games over .500 and still within the wildcard chase, but are a distant 3rd place in the AL East behind NY and the surging Blue Jays.
