Mariners' MLB-best 14-game winning streak snapped by Astros

USATSI

The Seattle Mariners lost to the Houston Astros by a 5-2 margin (box rating) on Friday night, snapping their majors-best 14-game winning streak. That matched the Atlanta Braves’ 14-game streak in June for the longest in Major League Baseball this season.

The Mariners’ winning streak connected for the seventh-longest mark considering that 1995, or the start of the wild card period. With another triumph, this edition of the Mariners would have connected the 2001 group for the longest in current franchise history. The 2001 Mariners, obviously, went on to win 116 video games throughout the routine season.

The Astros leapt ahead of the Mariners early, with 2nd baseman Jose Altuve releasing a solo crowning achievement to lead off the video game. Yordan Alvarez included another solo crowning achievement in the 4th, making it 2-0, and Martín Maldonado then did the exact same in the 5th, offering the Astros a 3-0 lead. An Alvarez sacrifice fly later on that inning would offer the Astros a 4-0 benefit, and Jake Meyers would plate another in the 6th, his single driving in Aledmys Diaz.

The Mariners would get on the board in the 6th with a Ty France solo crowning achievement. They’d score another in the 8th on a bases-loaded walk, cutting the deficit to 5-2.

The Mariners gone into Friday night victors of 14 of their previous 15 video games in July. They went into the month with a 37-41 record on the season and even after Friday’s loss they’ll bring a 51-43 mark into play on Saturday. 

Meanwhile, the Astros entered play on Friday with a 61-32 and a 10-game lead in the American League West.
