Will the Mariners ride the momentum generated by King Felix's perfect game? They host the Twins for a three-game series.

On Wednesday, the Seattle Mariners and their most beloved player, Felix Hernandez, achieved perfection. It had been a long time coming and will be the single, unforgettable moment in an otherwise disappointing season. The departure of one iconic Mariners player has been forgotten with the demonstrable greatness of another. One that still remains.

The Mariners had a well-earned off day on Thursday before continuing their homestand on Friday against the visiting Minnsota Twins. It might be a time to ride the momentum of the perfecto and exhibit some swagger.
