Franklin Gutierrez bails Mariners out in a 3-1 win

Wow, that was close. The Mariners were on the brink of irrelevance before Franklin Gutierrez hit a three-run homer off C.J. Wilson in the ninth. David Aardsma saves it for Felix Hernandez, the Mariners go on to a 3-1 win and are now only 3 1/2 games out of first place.
They were that close to being 5 1/2 out.
What a difference a swing makes.
