The Mariners just beat the Royals, 7-6. Looky at the AL West standings now:

Mariners...........13-2 .867
Astros................8-5 .615
Angels...............7-6 .538
Athletics.............9-8 .529
Rangers.............6-6 .500

This is the Mariners' 43rd season and they've never made it to the World Series, not even in 2001 when they tied the 1906 Cubs for most wins in a season (116). Could this finally be the Mariners' year? Right now they lead the major leagues in hits, home runs, doubles, RBIs and runs scored.
