An EPIC night!
Was there EVER a better post game interview in MLB in 2012? I’ll argue NOT. The Seattle Mariners, and Seattle are falling in love with their new outfielder.
“It’s hard not to!”
Eric Thames last night drove in the winning run for the Mariners in the bottom of the 9th inning against the Tampa Bay Rays.
It was the first career walk-off hit for him.
Thames blooped a two-out, walk-off single over the head of Tampa Bay second baseman Sean Rodriguez to cap a two-run ninth-inning rally as host Seattle ended the Rays’ season-high seven-game winning streak.
The two-run rally came against major-league saves leader Fernando Rodney, who had converted 22 consecutive opportunities.
Seattle’s uprising kept Tampa Bay’s Matt Moore from recording his fourth consecutive win.
M’s catcher John Jaso gave him the shaving cream pie during our live interview.
“MY Mouth was OPEN!” Will go down as one of the best Mariners quotes ever.
Enjoy the video with Jen Mueller and Eric Thames on the post game interview from ROOT Sports.
