Adam Dunn's 3-run blast off Nathan was the big blow)

Seattle Qualifies For #8 Seed






Kansas City traveled to Seattle for the second elimination game. Game #163 for Kansas City and #164 for Seattle.

Brian Bannister started for Kansas City while Roy Oswalt took the mound for Seattle in the deciding game. Seattle Manager John Ferraro was saving Oswalt for the first game of the playoffs but was forced to treat this as the first game of the playoffs after losing to Anaheim in the first elimination game.

Kansas City jumped on Oswalt early by scoring 3 runs in the first on 5 hits. After 4 innings, KC held a 3-0 lead and was out hitting Seattle 7 to 2.
Bannister then tired in the 5th inning after allowing 3 hits and 2 walks but Seattle only scored once by grounded into a double play and leaving the bases loaded.

Seattle tied the game in the 7th by adding 2, including a solo home run by Yadier Molina off Rudy Seanez.

Kansas City then fell apart in the 8th inning with Casey Janssen on the mound. With 1 run in and men on first and second, Janssen threw a wild pitch to advance the runners. Molina then hit a single that scored both runners when Hanley Ramirez threw the cut off throw wildly.

With a 6-3 going into the 9th, 2 men on and the tying run at the plate, Hanley Ramirez struck out looking for the third time on a Francisco Rodriguez 98mph fastball to end the game and the season for Kansas City. Ramirez, the first overall pick in the 2006 draft was able to manage two hit when he actually swung the bat.

The star of the game was Jose Reyes who was 3 for 5 with a stolen base, 2 runs and stellar defense. Russ Springer improved to 7-1 with the win. He struck out 4 in 1 2/3 IP.

Seattle moves on to face top seed Atlanta in the playoffs. It is a surprise match up for the Mariners as they didn't expect to make the playoffs. They traded two strong 2010 pitchers in John Maine and Kelvim Escobar to Atlanta for some players to assist in the future. But Ryan Braun fell to the Mariners at #4 in the draft and they acquired Albert Pujols to provide protection for Alex Rodriguez. As a result, the Mariners had three players with 40+ homeruns to make up for the weakened pitching staff.

Angels Secure 7th Seed






Reigning champion Anaheim at Seattle.....

Winner clinches the #7 seed in the playoffs while the loser hosts Kansas City for the right to clinch a playoff birth. Kason Gabbard took the mound for the Angels while Roger Clemens had the start for the Mariners.

Gabbard struggled a little early allowing 1 run in the first inning and loaded the bases in the 2nd but pitched out of it. Gabbard had his manager worried and Blaise took him out after recording 10 outs and the score tied 1-1.

After Gabbard came out, the Angels bats heated up. They scored 3 in the 5th, 2 in the 6th, 3 more in the 7th and another in the 8th to take a 10-1 lead. The Mariners bullpen could not stop the mutiny as all five pitchers allowed a run.

Final score: Anahiem 10 Seattle 3.
Roger Clemens took the loss to fall to 8-4 while Oscar Villareal earned the win even though he allowed 3 hits in 2/3 IP.

All three teams had the same winning percentage of .500 against the two other teams, so runs scored differential was used):

(September 19) - GAME 2 (to determine #8 seed): Kansas City (-19 runs scored vs. ANA/SEA) at GAME 1 loser
