Mariners couldn’t draw this one up much better

Nice way to see your team win this way if you’re Mariners GM Jack Zduriencik. Your team takes out the hottest team with the best record in baseball 4-2.
Not only that, but rookie Michael Pineda no-hits the Phillies for most of six innings, coming a strike away from taking it to the seventh. Dustin Ackley gets a hit in his major league debut, makes solid contact the rest of the night and turns an important 5-4-3 double play in the eighth ahead of a home run by Shane Victorino.

Ichiro gets three more hits and Brendan Ryan drives him in twice.
Justin Smoak gets a hit as the clean-up guy and also drives in a run.
Miguel Olivo hits another home run. What else?


Brandon League made things interesting in the ninth, yielding a pair of two-out hits. But in the end, he came through for the save.
That fourth run really helped because it gave the M’s a cushion to withstand some of that late-inning rallying by the Phils.
Oh yeah, and that last play by Ryan to end the game? Much tougher than it looked. Ryan brings this team to a different level.
