Mariners shut Rays down final eight innings, pull off dramatic win in the ninth

Sometimes, when you keep the other team from scoring as long as the Mariners did tonight, the baseball gods will smile kindly on you.
They did on the Mariners, who, trailing by a run in the ninth, saw first baseman Carlos Pena throw a bunt attempt by Chone Figgins away at first base. The ball rolled down the line in foul territory and gave Seattle runners at second and third with none out.
A sacrifice fly by Justin Smoak tied the game up and then Eric Thames won it with a two-out single to center off Fernando Rodney.
So, the Mariners take it 3-2 and end Tampa Bay’s seven-game win streak.
Be back soon. Gotta run to the clubhouse.
