A seven game winning streak in late August pushed the Mariners to within 3 games of .500, at 61-64. Since then, the Mariners have gone 9-14 against a tougher schedule, teams pushing for the playoffs.

First baseman Justin Smoak has struggled offensively for the Seattle Mariners since being acquired in a trade in 2010. However, he's been right on target for the most part against the team that dealt him, the Texas Rangers. On Saturday, Smoak hit a two-run, game-deciding homer in the eighth inning. Sunday saw him strike again in the eighth inning, hitting a solo homer that...
