Mariners win seventh in a row with a 5-3 comeback victory

Teams can sometimes ride a wave of momentum a long way and the Mariners are certainly doing that these days. They looked like they were about to get their lunch handed them by Carlos Villanueva tonight until Eric Thames hit that rocket home run over the center field wall in the fifth to tie the game.
The M’s didn’t stop there, with a double by Michael Saunders in the sixth and an RBI single by John Jaso, then a double by Brendan Ryan in the seventh and an RBI single by Dustin Ackley. All of a sudden, the M’s have a 5-3 win, their seventh in a row.
That’s the first time that’s happened in five years.
Blake Beavan gets the win with a 7 2/3 inning performance. Villanueva takes his first loss after a 6-0 start.
Loved the first base scoops by Mike Carp tonight. That’s a sign this team is playing with a purpose. They beat a very good pitcher tonight.
