M’s Walk Off With Dramatic HR, Win 4-3 #Lindsanity [VIDEO]
For the second time this season, Mariners first baseman Adam Lind pulled out a victory from the jaws of certain defeat with one swing of the bat.
Trailing 3-0 going into the bottom of the 9th and having been handcuffed by AL All-Star starting pitcher Chris Sale - who was going for his league-leading 15th win of the season - rallied to within a 3-1 score with two on and two out. Lind then stepped up and took a 0-1 pitch to the deepest part of SafeCo Field for a three-run walk off homer and a 4-3 Mariners win over the Chicago White Sox.
The win kept the M's at one game above the .500 mark at 47-46 and in third place in the AL West. Houston and Texas both lost yesterday so in turn Seattle gained ground in the standings and trail the Astros by three games and the Rangers by 7 1/2. Seattle is also 4 1/2 games out of the second Wild Card birth.
