Mariners Find A Fun New Way To Lose

This may be the most Mariners way to lose a game. It was a little bit of thrill, a lot of derp, and some one hilarious collision. To set the scene, the Mariners scored six runs in the top of the ninth to take a one-run lead. The White Sox responded by singling in a run in the bottom of the ninth to tie the game. And then, with a man on second, Eric Thames and Michael Saunders combined for a double TKO.

Thames may have actually made this catch. But with a runner on second, it didn't really matter. As our two combatants laid on the ground, the run scored. And the Mariners lost the game, 9-8.

Let's try that in slow-mo:

So yeah, fun game! Pretty great night for baseball, and this is the cherry on top. When two outfielders completely wreck each other, allowing in the winning run, we can probably just call it a day.
