Mariners lose 14th in a row in heartbreaking fashion

Doesn’t get all that much tougher than this. The Mariners weren’t perfect tonight, but battled their hearts out. And in the end, their hearts were broken.
They lost the game 3-1, their 14th consecutive defeat to tie a franchise record from 1992.
Seattle led 1-0 in the seventh, only to give back three in the bottom of the inning after getting the first two out.
Then, in the eighth, they loaded the bases with no out but failed to score. Seattle stranded 11 in this game.


Finally, in the ninth, with a runner on, Brendan Ryan hit a drive to left field that landed about six inches to the left of the foul pole.
No game-tying home run.
Of all the losses these past two weeks, this had to hurt the most.
