Mariners Hope To Avoid First 100-Loss Season In 25 Years
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Seattle Mariners open an eight-game road trip tonight in Anaheim against the Angels. The Mariners are working on a magic number of sorts -- they need to win 18 games out of their last 44 to avoid their first `100-loss season in 25 years. One less win and they'll finish 62-100, which would be the fourth 100-defeat season in franchise history. Jerrod Washburn is trying to improve on a 5-11 mark tonight for the Mariners, while the Angels are going with Jon Garland, who is 10-7.
