After a torrid month of August in which they started the month 15-6, the Seattle Mariners finished their most recent homestand with a resounding thud being held to just one run over the last two games by the Bronx Bombers and losing the getaway rubber match today by a 5-0 whitewash.

Seattle, still within striking distance of making the playoffs, head to the Southside of Chicago for a four-game series before a pivotal set with the division leading Texas Rangers.
