206 Clicks: Liddi Leads M's To Victory, Columbus Crew Shutout Sounders

Mariners 5, Rangers 3 [box]: The Mariners have won five out of their last six games and are 1.5 games back from second place after taking two out of three games from the first place Texas Rangers. Alex Liddi's grand slam did not look like a grand slam until it barely made it over the left field fence, but a grand slam is a grand slam. What was the most exciting part of the first game of the season I've attended at Safeco Field? I did not know souvenir helmet nachos existed. Lookout Landing has the smart postgame recap. Next game: Today, Seattle (21-25) vs. Los Angeles (20-25), 7:10 p.m. PT, ROOT Sports, 6.5 games back.
