The Seattle Mariners lost their sixth straight game this afternoon to move below .500 and cap off a long slide in which they’ve gone 8-19 and have been swept three times. Today’s loss was the dumbest. Starter Adrian Sampson injured his elbow warming up for the game but the Mariners managed to dinger their way back from a three-run deficit to send the game to extras.
In the tenth, however, it all went to shit. They got a runner on third with no outs, but couldn’t advance him. Then, Steve Cishek, who’s blown the second-most saves this season, sent a wild pitch past Chris Iannetta to let pinch runner Cameron Maybin score with ease.

The Mariners have now earned both the biggest win and dumbest loss of the MLB season. Congratulations.
