SWX Beat Clicks - Aug. 30, 2013

Posted: Updated:

Spokane needed a win in the worst way, and it delivered, defeating Everett soundly in the second-to-last regular season home game.

Seattle finished the 2013 preseason with an unblemished 4-0 record, and although that doesn't mean a whole lot, it does reflect the amount of depth and talent on the roster. Going from 75 to 53 in the final cutdown will be a tough day, but a lot of those players will find jobs elsewhere.

Franklin Gutierrez hit a two-run homer after Nick Franklin gave Seattle an early lead with a solo shot and the Mariners held on for a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Thursday night to end a six-game skid.

"At EWU (Glen) Dean was Big Sky Freshman of the year in 2009-10 and a second-team all-Big Sky honoree in 2010-11, and a two-time Big Sky All-Academic selection."

Pfennigs led an underwhelming offense in 2012 that scored more than 20 points just two times, and the team sputtered to a 2-7 overall record.

    Reviewing OOTP '15, Mariners Still Break Hearts in Baseball Video Game

    This lengthy build-up leads me to one sincere question: Did the 2001 season doom the Seattle Mariners franchise? If the M's had won the World Series that year, would we be talking about a dynasty? Out of the Park Baseball 15 allows baseball fans to answer that question.
