Here’s a closer look at the Mariners’ crazy 9-7 comeback win in 10 innings over the Astros on Monday night.

1: Mike Zunino’s first career hit off Luke Gregerson was his solo shot in the eighth inning after going 0 for 10 with five strikeouts against the Astros reliever.

2: The Mariners won back-to-back extra-innings games for the first time this season after going 1-5 in extras before Sunday.

3: The Mariners were to first team ever to score more than three runs in Houston against Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr., whose 27 straight home starts of three runs or less was the longest such streak to start a career since 1893. Seattle scored four off of McCullers.

4: Edwin Diaz earned four saves in four days, a first for a Mariners closer.

5: The Mariners have won five straight.

6: Segura, Segura, Segura. (Shortstop)

7: The Mariners used seven relievers in the win.

8: The Mariners got nine runs but needed only eight.

9: Straight seasons of 20 or more home runs by Nelson Cruz after his seventh inning blast. He is the only active player to currently hold that distinction, though Houston catcher Brian McCann could join him with nine more homers this year.

10: Innings needed for the Mariners to post their most exciting game of the season so far.

No starting pitcher.
