Mariners Breakdown: Reconciling painful collapse with playoffs in grasp

Sep 26, 2022, 5:37 PM

Losses don’t get much worse than the Mariners’ on Sunday.

In need of ending a tough road trip on a positive note, the Mariners went the wrong way. After an eight-run inning helped build a comfortable nine-run lead, Seattle let the Kansas City Royals strike for 11 runs in the sixth frame alone to take the game 13-12.

M’s blow nine-run lead, KC scores 11 in sixth for 13-12 win

If you ask Bob Stelton of Seattle Sports’ Wyman and Bob, losses simply don’t get any worse than that. At least not in Mariners history.

After Sunday’s game, Stelton called it the worst loss in a single game the M’s have ever endured as a franchise. On Monday, he explained why he feels that way in his latest Mariners breakdown video.

We don’t dwell on just that in the weekly installment, which you can watch at this link or in the video player at the top of this post. Bob also shares his biggest concerns coming into a three-series homestand to finish off the regular season, how he feels about starting pitcher Luis Castillo signing to a big extension with the team, and his comfort level with the Mariners’ magic number to clinch their first playoff spot since 2001 sitting at six with 10 games to go.
