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.

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.
