In all of Major League Baseball, only two teams played seven games in the first seven days of the season: the Oakland A’s and the Seattle Mariners. And, unlike the A’s, the Mariners played all seven on the road. So, after this quirk, where did the Mariners stand after a trip to Chicago? The Mariners won Friday in extra innings, and then followed that with some heartbreak...
